1st October 2021

Petrock’s Place, our new pop-up hub and vintage charity shop, is now OPEN, 10am – 4pm Tuesday – Saturday at 19 Paris Street, Exeter, EX1 2JB.

This exciting new project aims to boost local sustainability, re-cycle & re-purpose donations, provide volunteering and training opportunities, and engage with the Exeter community around homelessness issues in our city.

This is a project for the whole Exeter community – and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.

*CHARITY CHRISTMAS CARDS & 2022 EXETER CALENDAR

St Petrock’s charity Christmas cards are now on sale in Petrock’s Place. These beautiful cards have been designed by local artist Chris Marriott, and feature 3 local scenes (including a StP’s 25th Anniversary image of our centre).

Chris’s Exeter City Calendar 2022 is also (exclusively) on sale at Petrock’s Place, featuring colourful and instantly-recognisable sites around the city (StP’s features for ‘August’). Do call in for your copy.

*CHRISTMAS WISHING WHEEL

We’re inviting the local community to add a strip of coloured fabric & Christmas wish to our Petrock’s Place window wishing wheel. Images of the completed wheel will be used as a Christmas parcel tag on the meals we give to rough-sleepers, to show people they’re not forgotten at this busy time of year.
