7 Greenways, Sawtry PE28 5UR 01487 208026
COVID 19 Update
Following the current Government guidelines, we have suspended our activities and clubs until further notice to protect our service users, members, volunteers and staff. This includes the Green End and Alconbury Thursday Clubs, Chatterbox and Sounds Good groups, the Car Scheme, Sawtry Man Cave, the Coffee Shop and our Charity Shop.
We will be publishing the Sawtry Eye as usual, though there may be a delay is distribution. The Sawtry Foodbank will also continue to operate, if in a different way. Please be patient as we explore the best way forward while keeping everyone safe.
Thank you for your continued support, we hope to be back up and running as soon as possible. Meanwhile, we will be responding to messages as best we can.
With over 40 volunteers and a small team of duty managers, the shop offers the usual range of charity shop goods including: clothing, shoes, toys, household linen, jewellery, books, DVDs, CDs, small electricals and bric-a-brac. Donations of suitable items in good clean condition are welcome during opening hours, or call the shop to arrange collection if you cannot deliver yourself. Storage space is limited so it would be appreciated if you would phone ahead if you have a large amount of donations.
Proceeds from the shop are put back into the work of CARESCO, helping to secure our future and supporting existing and additional services for our local community.
If you are a UK tax payer, please consider completing our Retail Gift Aid declaration form so that we can claim the tax back on the proceeds from the sale of any items you donate.
The CARESCO Charity Shop opened its doors to customers for the first time in April 2013. Thanks to a lot of help and support from the local community and businesses, this had been made possible in record time, the fulfilment of a vision first sparked from Parish Plan discussions in 2012.
