CARE Shop is located on Alexandra Road in Cleethorpes and provides furniture free of charge to those in the North East Lincolnshire area who are in need. Over £250,000 has been donated since the shop was started in 1992 to families or single people in financial hardship.
CARE Shop exists to provide furniture free of charge to those who are not able to access help via the normal channels and have exhausted the benefit system, including the social fund. Stock is donated from North East Lincolnshire residents, mainly from newspaper advertisements, and either sold through the shop to raise funds to cover overheads or donated to those in need.
All manner of beds, tables and chairs, three piece suites, wardrobes, pots and pans and clothing can be accessed at the CARE Shop, and subject to satisfactory application and interview will be donated free of charge. A loyal team of staff and volunteers can often arrange delivery within 24 hours, and hundreds of families and single people from all parts of the NE Lincs community have been given a 'kick start' through the services of the CARE Shop.
With the good will of the local community CARE has been given over £1.2 million of goods with over £250,000 of second hand value furniture being given away to local families, since the shop was opened in 1992. With it's excellent double frontage it continues to be an access point for disadvantaged and vulnerable people to approach the charity for help, with over 400 applications each year.
