While most of our funding is provided by the BOPDHB, we do need to raise approx. $500,000 to fill the gap in our operating costs. Our Hospice shops are vital for helping us raise these funds.
Hospice EBOP have three Hospice shops, located in Whakatane, Kawerau and Opotiki. Our shops raise vital funds, which allows Hospice EBOP to continue to offer our free palliative care service to everyone throughout the Eastern Bay of Plenty.
Whether you're looking for designer clothing, vintage furniture, books, china and bric-a-brac, we have a constant supply of quality goods. There are all sorts of treasures at the Hospice shops.
We provide a free donation pick up and delivery service (for a small fee) for furniture and other oversized items, please call our office on 07 307 2244 for more details.
We are grateful to receive donations from our community and we feel very lucky to be supported by an awesome team of volunteers who help with the day to day running of our shops and in our delivery van. Both the donations and volunteer hours help us to keep our costs down so most of our shop profits can go into funding our patient care.
If you are interested in volunteering in one of our Hospice shops or in our delivery/pick up van, you can register here, and our volunteer coordinator will be in touch with you.
