Hospice Shops

'Turning second hand goods into first class care'

Thank you for your generous donations. Proceeds from our two shops provide 28% of the income required to  operate our services annually.

Our Retail Manager and her team, are supported by teams of rostered volunteers each day at both stores. The shops are busy centres and are supported by approximately 300 shop volunteers each year.

Our Whangarei shop and Waipu shop are open six days a week, year round and volunteers assist our staff and Team Leaders to ensure the smooth running of the shops both behind the scenes collecting, sorting and pricing and front of shop assisting with stock control, counter and in store events.

If you have good tidy furniture, clothing, bric a brac, books and more, we would appreciate your donation.

To ensure that we receive your donated goods, please make sure that you drop them to the shop only during opening hours.
