We are working within our community to support vulnerable people of all ethnicities, genders, and ages.

Your Donations Are Welcomed

In these unprecedented times; when people are losing their jobs, their homes, their families and are suffering with mental health issues, it is becoming very clear that they are struggling to feed themselves, their families and their children.

We, at The Ark, would like to take this opportunity to ask you for your kind assistance. If you’re in a position to donate an item(s) of food to our Food Bank at The Ark, it would be greatly appreciated. We will use these items to help those who are in need of help and/or support.

If for any reason you prefer to make a financial contribution that would be very welcomed too. You can make the donation on our website here, just click the donate button which is at the top right corner. Please ensure you mark your donation 'FOR THE ARK'. Financial donations will help us purchase fresh items of food as and when it is required.

Any item(s) you would like to donate can be left at our local collection point, which is at, 1 Greenwich Avenue, Old Basford, Notts NG6 0LD (Large Green Container). 


NOTE: all fresh Meat, Fruit, Vegetables, Bread and Milk will be purchased

as and when required.

Let's work together in supporting the vulnerable,

tackling hunger and 'building a brighter future' for all.
