To us, your time is priceless. Whether you can volunteer for a few hours once in a while or a regular weekly shift, as part of #TeamMartlets you’ll play a crucial part in keeping your local hospice going.

Our volunteers help in many different areas doing a variety of essential roles from donations sorters to refreshment assistants for our patients. They’re people of all ages and backgrounds who want to give back to their community, learn useful skills and make new friends along the way.

Whatever your experience and skills, we’ll help you find a Martlets volunteer role that suits you. Below you’ll see the main areas of volunteers support us but if you don’t see something suitable for you, you could still help us – perhaps in a way we’ve never thought.

Support our shops

We have 9 charity shops across the region – in Brighton, Hove, Lewes, Peacehaven, Rottingdean and Woodingdean.

If you love vintage, have a passion for fashion and enjoy serving customers then our shops are the place to be.  Each is unique, but they all have lovely friendly teams! But don't just take our word for it - come along to a taster session to go behind the scenes, chat to our existing volunteers and learn more about the benefits of volunteering.

Support our distribution centre 

Our distribution centre is the hub of our trading business, where donated goods are sorted and distributed to our shops. If you prefer working behind the scenes and enjoy team camaraderie then this might be just the place for you.

Support our fundraising and events team 

We run lots of events throughout the year; so if you like meeting new people, are happy to shake a bucket, cheer loudly and get stuck in then our Fundraising team would love you to join them.

Our events are spread throughout the year – you can help out at all of them or one of them, it’s flexible and completely up to you. 

Support our hospice

Volunteers are a crucial part of our hospice. They run the café, provide treatments in our pamper suite, run arts and crafts activities, look after the garden, drive patients to and from appointments and much, much more.
