COVID 19 Update - 06/09/21

Community Support At the start of September 2021, CARESCO launched a new service Community Support . This team of volunteers will be offering to fulfil small everyday errands, such as local shopping trips and prescription deliveries for those who can not do these for themselves. Thank you to this amazing team, many of whom have been part of our Covid Response Team throughout the pandemic.

Alternatively, to request support or to find out more, call the CARESCO Community Support Co-ordinator weekdays between 9 & 11am on: 07873 187843. Please leave a message and your number if there is no answer, and they will get back to you.

For links to other organisations who may be able to offer help and advice during the pandemic, please visit our dedicated COVID-19 page.

Sawtry Foodbank is continuing to serve those who need the support. They can be contacted on 07743 593863 or emailed at .

The Man Cave is a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice new skills and to enjoy making and mending. It is all about social connections and building friendships, sharing expertise and passing on knowledge.

We are based at the back of Sawtry Community Centre, which is sited in the car park behind the Old School Hall on Green End Road (What3Words: ///reeling.drop.taxed). Our sessions are from 9am -12 noon Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings. For more information, please download our leaflet.

Activities currently include:

  • Replacing watch batteries
  • PAT testing electrical items
  • Woodworking - Bird boxes; insect houses; hedgehog boxes; garden planters
  • Upcycling pre-loved items

From time to time we offer items through eBay. To check out what is currently available, click on the logo to open a new tab with our eBay sales page. Why not add us to your 'Saved Sellers' for next time? Free local collection.

We also offer items for local collection via our Facebook page.

We are able to accept donations of secondhand goods for refurbishment projects only by prior arrangement, space, time and manpower allowing. Please contact us to check details and availability. If you are making such a donation and 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.

Please do not bring your donations without making contact with us first and do not leave anything outside of our workshop when we are closed. Disposal causes us a lot of trouble and expense.

Disabled access available.
