Support our work

If you would like to support our work, you can do so in a number of ways.

We ask for a minimum annual subscription of £25, but any extra amount goes towards funding ongoing projects.

As an example, £45 pays for three fully kitted leavers’ bags given to men locating to a hostel or of no fixed abode.

£80 pays for a Play Worker to work for a whole weekend with children visiting their fathers.

The easiest way to pay your subscription is via a bank transfer using these details:

• Bank: Lloyds Bank Account
• name: Friends of Guys Marsh Prison
• Bank account number: 41615668
• Sort code: 30-65-21

If you prefer you can pay by cheque made payable to Friends of Guys Marsh Prison and sent to:
The Treasurer, FOGM, HMP Guys Marsh, Shaftesbury SP7 0AH

You can also submit a Standing Order mandate here

Become a Friend of Guys Marsh

Subscribing to Friends of Guys Marsh to support our works costs from £25 per year, though any more is a very useful and welcome bonus. Friends are given priority booking for the sociable fund-raising events that we arrange and are also sent an annual newsletter to update them about our work.
To download a subscription form click here. To renew your subscription automatically, please complete a standing order mandate which may be downloaded here; this also helps our budgeting.


If you would like to become involved with some of our activities, volunteers are occasionally needed for welcoming and tea and coffee making on Saturdays (12.30-2.15pm) at the Visitors Centre. Both are located outside the prison itself. The tasks involved are straightforward and full instructions are given. Keen to help? Please Contact Us.


Help support a playworker by making a donation here. If you would like to make a regular monthly donation by standing order (from £10 per year), please download the form or you may also contact us.
Donations by cheque (to “Friends of Guys Marsh”) should be posted to:
The Treasurer, Friends of Guys Marsh, c/o HMP Guys Marsh, Shaftesbury, Dorset SP7 0AH.
