Become a retail volunteer
Our retail volunteers are a generous and committed team who play a huge part in what we do.
As a retail volunteer, you’ll make a positive impact in your community, gain new skills, develop lasting friendships and be a part of a fun team.
All Mary Potter Hospice volunteers attend an orientation and specific training is given for each role from the volunteer’s manager and team. Volunteers are provided with ongoing guidance and health and safety training as well as support from their supervisor.
Whether you volunteer with us for a few hours, or a few days each week, your time helps us keep hospice services free – here’s how you can help.
Volunteer Shop Assistant
Volunteer Shop Assistants prepare and sell goods donated to our Hospice shops and create a great experience for customers.

Volunteer Online Retail Coordinators photograph, upload listings and organise the fulfilment of items sold on the Hospice’s Trade Me store. Second-hand online retail trading experience is preferred.
