Hospice Shops

Turning second hand goods into first class care

Our charity stores are treasure troves offering a huge variety of quality pre-loved goods. Mary Potter Hospice stores are special because of their big range, good quality and great prices. We offer a wide variety of household goods, including clothing, books, homeware, collectables, electrical goods and furniture.

Our shops

We have eight secondhand opshops located in Miramar, Kilbirnie, Karori, Thorndon, Newlands, Tawa, Porirua and Paraparaumu.

Our secondhand stores sell quality goods donated by our local community and are staffed by dedicated volunteers. Together with their support we broke our revenue records in the year ending June 2016 by raising $2 million for Mary Potter Hospice. These funds are used to directly care for Wellingtonians with terminal illnesses and their families.

Our Porirua shop and warehouse is currently closed, but we are still able to collect donations for our seven other stores, and plan to reopen in a new Porirua location as soon as possible.

Our 300 retail volunteers work in our stores sorting, displaying and selling items as well as on
Trade Me which provides a very important source of revenue for the Hospice. They also work as truck drivers (no HT licence required) and truck hands for our logistics operation.

We are always looking for volunteers and welcome your enquiry.
