Here at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre we rely on fundraising and events, together with income from our cafe, exhibition and shop,  to raise our annual running costs of £500,000, helping  us continue to connect people to the food, history and landscape of the surrounding area.   Each year, we welcome over 120,000 of visitors to the Centre, and provide learning opportunities for over 6,000 children.

There are so many ways that you can support us, just a few examples include:

£50 covers the cost of one of our Bird Walks in Onny Meadows

£100 pays for one day of our Education Programme, providing activity-led fun and learning for school children

£200 pays for the repair and maintenance of one Discovery Centre window

£1,000 pays for hay cutting in Onny Meadows each summer providing green space for visitors leisure time with friends, family and pets

£5,000 helps us to maintain the pathways around Onny Meadows providing access to the fields and pools

It costs over £25,000 to manage the 30 acres of Onny Meadows, ensuring they are freely available for the enjoyment of the local community and visitors.

Help us to continue to be there for the enjoyment, benefit and learning of visitors to our Centre
