Petrus provides a range of services to support people who are homeless or in housing need.
They provide accommodation and support for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. At any one time, Petrus can provide a homely place to live to 100 people in Rochdale and Oldham.
The Petrus Community Store in Rochdale sells second-hand, high quality goods such as furniture, homeware, books, music, clothing and more. All funds raised help us to support people experiencing homelessness.
Rotary Club members help sort, test and if necessary repair donated items so less goes to waste.
Petrus Incredible Edibles Rochdale (PIER) is a community allotment on Belfield Road in Rochdale
Community gardening brings people together from all walks of life. The allotment is open to the public to be used as a recreational space and hosts a range of events throughout the year that are open to everyone. Club members regularly help at these events.
At the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park 2019, Petrus had a double back-to-back garden and won a Silver Medal and the People's Choice Award!
The garden, Petrus' Paradise, was partly sponsored by the Rotary Club of Rochdale and was been designed by a team of staff, volunteers and services users from PIER who wanted the garden to reflect a service user's journey through life with Petrus. It's a fantastic opportunity to show what we're capable of achieving.
