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.

How we help you

We operate a fleet of wheelchair accessible minibuses that can collect you from your home, at pre-arranged times, taking you to the nearest major town enabling you to access major supermarkets and services.

On your return home the drivers will assist with carrying any shopping if required.

What does it cost?

Costs will vary according to the distance travelled. Full return fares range from £2.50 - £6.00. If you are in possession of a Concessionary Travel Pass then you will be entitled to a 25% discount. For more information please contact the Call and go administrators at the address or number shown below.

Our commitment to quality

All of our drivers are DBS checked and MiDAS trained. We are also full members of the Community Transport Association.

What our clients say

“I don’t know what I would have done without your service, I can’t drive anymore and we no longer have a bus service”

“Having been a passenger on your bus for a considerable time, I felt I should congratulate you on your exceptional drivers, without exception they are so kind and considerate”

Fundraising

All of our vehicles are approaching the end of their useful life and to replace them will cost a considerable amount of money. If you would like to support this project to enable us to continue the service please visit Virgin Money Giving/ Community First New Forest, or send donations directly to the address below.
