19 Paris Street, Exeter, EX1 2JB (opposite Next / park & ride)

Monday – Friday, 11am – 3pm (Hours will be extended after set up phase)

We are now taking donations of good quality clothing, good quality bric-a-brac and haberdashery for our new Petrock’s Place hub & charity shop (please see here for details).

Please take donations to the rear of the shop (via the road entrance to the old bus station) where you’ll find a large blue donation container (marked ‘donations’). We are emptying this several times daily while we set up.

IMPORTANT: Please do not leave items in the evenings or weekends, as they are likely to be taken or damaged. Please note that we are also unable to take donations for the shop at our homelessness centre – thank you for your understanding.



St Petrock’s Centre, 10 Cathedral Yard, Exeter, EX1 1HJ

Monday – Friday, 8.30am – 1pm.

Please note that we are only able to take donations from our Currently Needed List at our centre (NOT donations for our Petrock’s Place shop).

We are also not generally able to take any bedding (other than sleeping bags) or household furniture. Thank you very much for your understanding and support.

If in doubt, please contact us to check we have capacity to receive your donation before travelling. Thank you.

How to find St Petrock’s Centre: St Petrock’s centre is in the back half of the little old church in the corner of Cathedral Yard, between Warren’s Bakery and The Ivy restaurant.   (Note that access is from the Cathedral Yard side of the church, not from the High Street).  If you enter Cathedral Yard from the crossroads with the traffic lights at the top of South Street / High Street / North Street (by Warren’s bakery), we are the first door on the left, up a couple of stone steps. Please ring the buzzer and someone will come and assist you.

If travelling by car we have to make you aware of parking/unloading restrictions enforced in Cathedral Yard. Car access is only permitted between 8.30am -10am.  You can drive into the yard from the entrance by the traffic lights by Warren’s bakery at the top of South Street  and pull up briefly outside.  (Alternate parking is available nearby in South Street, Mary Arches or Smythen Street carparks).

You may wish instead to consider purchasing our most urgently needed items from our Amazon Wishlist for delivery straight to us.  

Thank you for your support – it’s hugely appreciated!
