    If you are a UK taxpayer, by Gift Aiding your donation we will be able to reclaim a further 25p on every £1 donated. Download our Gift Aid declaration form.

  • Gifts

    Toiletries, bedding, clothes and shoes are gratefully received and regularly used by our clients. We also use dried and tinned food - especially tins with ring pulls (tin openers are always needed too!). Please drop them into any of our supported accommodation houses or our resettlement centres in Truro or Penzance.

    Depending on the availability of our storage space we also take household items and furniture and fittings (that comply with current safety standards) to use in our supported accommodation and to pass to clients as they move into their own accommodation.

  • Online Purchases

    Every time you buy something online you could also be raising money for us. Register at and select St Petroc's Society as your cause. Then, when you go shopping, instead of going to the retailer's website, go to first. Link to the retailer from there and go shopping as normal. The price of your purchase is exactly the same as if you'd visited the retailer directly.

    Over 2,700 well known retailers including Amazon, John Lewis, eBay and Tesco will donate a percentage of what you spend to say thank you for shopping with them.

  • Payroll Giving

    Payroll Giving allows employees to donate through their employer's payroll scheme and results in a tax efficient donation. Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you're a higher rate taxpayer it will only cost you 60p.

    For more information on Payroll Giving agencies see the HM Revenue & Customs web page HM Revenue & Customs: Payroll Giving - approved Payroll Giving agencies.

  • Collection Boxes

    If you would like a collection box for your shop, restaurant, church or other organisation please contact our Admin & Finance Office (Lander House, 5 Upper Lemon Villas, Truro, TR1 2PD) who will be pleased to supply you with one.

  • Bequests

    Leaving a bequest in your will can result in tax advantages for your estate as well as providing valuable funds for our organisation. Please ensure you take appropriate legal advice when considering leaving a bequest.

Your Donations Make A Difference

Meet Chris

I have lived in so many different places, I've lived rough and when I say rough, I mean jagged.

If half the people in the world suddenly had some kind of epiphany about how they treat and affect other people in their life, I truly believe that these Godforsaken towns and cities that we live in would become almost bearable. heart keeps inside it the sorrow of a million and more forgotten sons and daughters that reside among the back alleys in their sleeping bags and cardboard homes. These melancholy and missing children of this once amazing nation are inevitably lost and forgotten in co-op coffins bought by the state without even a single mournful tear between them. The cold night and chills takes them and never judges; then sickness and alcohol, drugs and depression become the causes and blame as we walk by them on our way back home.

I'm the first to say there's help if you want it but it's hard and you really have to take the strain and pull yourself on to your feet.
