Petrock’s Place, our new pop-up hub and vintage charity shop, is now OPEN, 11am – 3pm 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.
We are now taking donations at 19 Paris Street. Can you help with any of the following?
*Good-quality bric-a-brac items (vintage-style)
*Haberdashery items (rolls of cloth, scissors, thread, wool etc)
Donations can be dropped directly at our new shop at 19 Paris Street, EX1 2JB (opposite Next / park & ride stop). We are currently taking donations 11am – 3pm Tuesday – Saturday.
IMPORTANT: Please do not leave items in the evenings or weekends, as they are likely to be taken or damaged.
As we’re trying to run sustainably and reduce waste, please be considerate and donate items of a quality you’d be happy to buy! Thank you.
(Any items suitable for rough-sleepers will instead be given directly to clients, who will be prioritised over sales)
We are looking for enthusiastic, team-spirited volunteers with a ‘can-do’ attitude to join our team.
Working alongside our shop-manager, this is a great opportunity to gain experience in a retail environment and make new friends. Volunteers should be able to commit to (at least) a 3 hour shift per week.
Please see our volunteer role description for details of what’s involved, and download a volunteer application form. Completed forms should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to the address shown on the form.
