Care Zone Open for Donations

We are pleased to say that we are now open to receive donations. If you can bring the items we are open Monday and Fridays from 11am to 1pm at our warehouse which is located at Dodson House, Fengate, PE1 5XG. We have a safe system where you can unload the items in our yard and maintain 2 meter social distance.

Following our partial closure during lockdown, Care Zone are pleased to confirm that we are slowly re-opening to serve those in need in our city. Even during our partial closure we have still be helping those in urgent need. Working closely with the Covid Community Hub and other partners we have continued to provide essential furniture to those fleeing domestic violence. We also helped a very sweet couple whose sofa was broken. The gentleman had spinal problems so we were able to provide a lovely replacement sofa and high back chair.

However we need help to rebuild our furniture stock. We are looking for good quality donations of unwanted or preloved furniture. The items we need are:

Bed frames

Mattresses

Sofas

Dining table & chairs

Chest of drawers

Wardrobes

Kitchen packs – saucepans/frying pans

Bedding – duvet, pillow, bedding packs
