There are currently five hospice shops operating throughout the Nelson Tasman region. These are staffed by managers who are supported by a dedicated volunteer team. Those that work with Hospice Shops thoroughly enjoy the challenge of raising funds for Nelson Tasman Hospice, and successfully raise almost half of the $3.5M funding shortfall each year.
Our shops take pride in creating imaginative, attractive displays inviting customers to participate in an unique shopping experience. We aim to follow the changing seasons and trends with new stock on our shelves every day. Hospice shop customers come in looking for a great bargain. They also know that when they purchase from one of our stores they are supporting an excellent cause.
The shops are always grateful to receive donated items such as clothing, furniture, bric-a-brac, books, general household items, linen, in fact, anything that is in a good, clean saleable condition. It’s because of these donations, the stores are able to make such a difference for hospice.
