The Rural Charity

Rural communities are facing significant challenges, and that poverty remains an important dimension of rural life, albeit one that is often hidden and poorly addressed. A wide range of issues influence and shape experiences of rural poverty including the nature of the labour market, income adequacy, affordable and accessible housing, fuel poverty and access to services. Our society has been linked with the local rural economy for more than a century and the original objectives of education, encouragement and support for the people who make up that economy has never been true to be realised.

Our charity shops are in the following locations:

7-9 Albion Hill, Oswestry. Telephone: 01691 688650.
4 High Street, Ellesmere. Telephone: 01691 624021.
29 High Street, Wem. Telephone: 01939 236559.
77 Whitchurch Road, Shrewsbury. Telephone: 01743 440067.
21 High Street, Church Stretton (Furniture). Telephone: 01694 720284.
13-15 High Street, Church Stretton (Household). Telephone: 07818 359203.
The Rural Charity

Income generated from the proceeds of sales will help to make the Shropshire & West Midlands Agricultural Society  self-sustaining and the surplus funds will form a bursary to help to finance our objectives. We expect to be able to make donations to our supported schemes such as the Shropshire Young Farmer’s organisation, RABI, Shropshire Community Resource and small groups or organisations who need additional help and support.

Great location just an easy 15 minute walk into town. Own little garden with a shelter and fire pit. Washing and toilet block and pot wash point close by. Very friendly staff. Very peaceful, calm and relaxing even though it is a big site. We had a great stay.

Great having indoor area (with heater) and two outside options (no cover or under cover). Site was enormous so plenty of room for kids to kick a ball and run about. Good fun swimming, canoeing and fishing in the River Severn. Site very secure and staff all very helpful. Shrewsbury and the surrounding area is a great location with so much to see and do. We will be back.

We had a great camping weekend and thank you for the warm & helpful welcome when we arrived. Facilities were fine, nice powerful showers and ideally situated, being a peaceful site, but still close to the town. We will certainly be returning and have recommended the site to friends. "What a find" Thanks again!
