‘Handyman’, Maintenance, or Gardening Helper

Location: Blenheim
Job Type: Volunteer
Specialisation: Trades & Services
  • Are you handy with fixing things around the house?
  • Do you have maintenance or gardening skills that you would like to share for a good cause?

We want you!

CARE Marlborough provides a day program in Percy Street and we’re looking for someone to help keep things tidy and in working order.  We are looking for volunteers with ANY and ALL skills and knowledge relating to house and garden upkeep. Some volunteers may prefer to pass on skills/knowledge by engaging small groups of service users in gardening or maintenance activities.
 

Examples of duties:

  • Repairing small spots of wear and tear
  • Replacing light bulbs
  • Painting touch-up
  • Water blasting
  • Tidying garden

Timing is fairly flexible; CARE Marlborough is open 9am –3pm, 7 days a week. YOU choose how long you commit for; a single-event, a few weeks, or long-term. YOU choose whether you volunteer your services regularly or on an on-call basis
