Four and a half years.

What do you love most about working for hospice?
All the wonderful people I get to work with and the regular customers who love our shop.

Tell us a little about your store:
We sell a large variety of items and have a lot of families coming in.

What’s the best Hospice Shop find you’ve come across, or share a memorable donation that your store received:
One of our volunteers brought in a painting of Mana Island by a well-known local artist for us to sell, unaware that it was worth several hundred dollars!

Tell us a little about your team:
Many of the volunteers in our team have been with the Hospice for a number of years. One committed person has been with us for over 15 years! They bring so much knowledge and skills. Their support is invaluable.
