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.

Volunteers Urgently Wanted

Would you like to help a local worthy cause?

Can you spare some time?

Why not consider volunteering in your community and 'paying it back'?


Volunteer drivers wanted

Want that 'feel good factor'?
Have you got some spare time?
Do you want to help your community?

Why not join one of the New Forest Voluntary Car Schemes!

They provide transport and other help to people who cannot easily get out and about. You can give as little or as much time as you wish. There is not regular commitment - just as and when you are free.

You could:

  • become a volunteer driver - receive reimbursement for your mileage
  • become part of the team - take calls from passengers or join the committee

If you are interested in helping then please contact the Volunteer Centre Co-ordinator on 01425 482773 or

Could you be a Volunteer Minibus Driver?

The Volunteer Centre at Community First New Forest is looking to swell the numbers of volunteers who can drive minibuses in the community.

Do you have some spare time, especially in the summer holiday period to lend a hand taking children to activities in the New Milton area, or perhaps enabling older people to collect their essential shopping?

We are looking to MiDAS train new drivers to be able to assist these groups and many more.

We want anyone who is interested in training to be a minibus driver to get in touch.

It is a flexible opportunity which can fit it with other commitments you may have.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer minibus driver then please contact the Volunteer Centre Co-ordinator on 01425 482773
