Give the gift of time

Volunteers are the backbone of Ronald McDonald House South Island and we simply couldn’t provide our services without them. If you have time to generously give, we can always use your help. Please see below for further details.


“Gay and Robyn our ‘Tuesday Chicks’ are a huge part of the Ronald McDonald House South Island family. From wrapping presents for newborn babies, collecting for the Annual Appeal to lending an ear or shoulder to cry on, these ladies go above and beyond. “We love volunteering here,” says Robyn. “Not only do you feel like you’re making a difference, but we feel part of the team.”

Join the Team – General Volunteering

Our volunteers are part of our family and so we make sure each and every one is giving their time in the most valuable way by providing lots of ways to help.

If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the online form below, or click here for more details on each of the volunteer roles available.

All team members of Ronald McDonald House South Island are required to complete the New Zealand Police Vetting Request & Consent form.  Once we have received your Volunteer submission form, our Volunteer Coordinator will send you the Police Vetting forms that are required.
