Rob & Sarah Simons


Rob and Sarah founded the Ark with a heart to make a difference in their local community and to
provide safe spaces when the storms of life come.
Having weathered various storms of their own over the years they wanted to support and
encourage others not to give up in the eye of ‘ their ‘ storm but to believe for a brighter future.


Pauline Wakely -Director

Pauline’s passion for people is infectious as is her ability to draw out the best in every individual and help them reach their full potential. Pauline is often described as Mary Berry in disguise as her cooking leaves everyone asking for ‘more
please'! Part of her role within the Ark is sharing these skills with others and , equipping them to
become their own master chef!
Pauline brings a real strength to the team along with a warm heart to encourage us all.
