VOLUNTEER

VOLUNTEERS, MEN AND WOMEN, OF ALL AGES ARE ESSENTIAL!
Each shop has an employed manageress, but can only run effectively with the assistance of 22 volunteers, each willing to work one, four hour shift per week am or pm.
Our volunteers are on the front line helping to process stock and serve customers - their support is priceless. They form the backbone of our ministry, involving their families and friends, encouraging the support of their churches. If you have time that you are willing to give to a worthy cause, we would love to hear from you! By joining our team, you will learn new skills. Your training and experience will be a tremendous asset to us. Whatever your interest, be that antiques, books, art or interacting with people, there will be a role to best suit you.

Your gift of time, skills and experience will be put to good use!

THERE IS NEVER A DULL MOMENT!!
Unpacking boxes, cleaning, sweeping, ironing, unloading vehicles and carrying furniture. Hard work yes, but oh, so rewarding! At Hidden Treasure, we are always on the look out for those with a sound knowledge of collectables, music, jewelry, books, vintage clothing, textiles, photography or stamps and coins. We must make sure we never overlook a 'hidden treasure'. We welcome those who specialize in these items, using your knowledge to accurately price and display our goods. Your experience is our map to the 'hidden treasure'.
