Oxfam in Lymington is desperately seeking volunteers for their newly opened shop with a difference.

This is a great opportunity to volunteer in a new Oxfam shop that is aiming to create a slightly different experience for the customer!

You will be joining a small but growing team helping us to make the most from donations; offering fantastic customer service as well as sorting, pricing and preparing for sale a wide range of products.

As we grow our team our opening hours will increase.

Eventually we hope to open 7 days a week - 8 hours per day Monday - Saturday and 6 hours on Sunday, however your gift of time can be arranged to suit you as well as the needs of our business.

Whatever your interest, from customer facing to sorting stock please do get in touch.

Your help will make a real difference.

Being a Walk Leader


Healthy Walkers have enjoyed walking and talking on free walks for the last 9 years.

These walks offer a wonderful opportunity to meet people and see the local area from a different perspective.

Although the aim is to get a little fitter and to enjoy better general health, the walks offer a chance to catch up regularly with friends made on the walks.

Everyone agrees that it’s the social side they enjoy the most.

The 43 volunteer Walk Leaders are out in all weathers and dedicated to organising friendly and interesting walks.

Healthy Walks in the New Forest are enjoyed by 385 people and Volunteer Walk Leaders would welcome help to lead walks and offer varied routes.

Walking is proven to improve health and happiness so why not enquire about becoming a Volunteer Walk Leader under this nationally supported scheme in Lymington, Barton on Sea, New Milton (2 walks), Waterside, Lyndhurst and Fordingbridge (2 walks).

A full day’s training is provided free of charge, focusing on the practicalities of leading a Healthy Walk, route planning and the benefits of walking.

There is also ongoing support after training.

Contact Jan Barratt on 01425 482 773 / 07788 558 864 or email to find out more about this role.
