Group Volunteering Wellington


Our group volunteers play a significant role in helping to create a ‘home-away-from-home’ for families. In Wellington we have a range of opportunities available.

Family Dinner Nights – Monday – Friday

Family dinners are provided by community or corporate groups two to three days a week. On these nights families don’t have to worry about making dinner and can look forward to a special home cooked meal made by volunteers. Get your team of eight people together, plan the meal utilising frozen and dry goods from our pantry and make it a night. A home cooked meal lifts spirits and enables families to concentrate on giving all their support to their child in hospital.

Heat and Eat – Full or half day Wednesdays

Heat and Eat meals are prepared by groups to stock our freezers so there is always a hearty meal to pull out for families when needed. These meals need to be easy to freeze and then reheat. This gives families the flexibility of eating a meal when they choose without losing precious time preparing it. We also need lots of hearty soup to feed families for lunch every day at the Ronald McDonald Family Room. If you’re a baker, you can also create a few treats for families.

Working Bee – Secure your place! With one spot a month you have to be quick.

Help make our House a ‘home-away-from-home’. There is always plenty of work to be done and many hands make light work! From cleaning to organising kitchens, water blasting playgrounds and outdoor areas, gardening or washing vehicles – working bee teams of up to 10 people need to be determined to get the job done and ready for anything!

Volunteer Testimonials

“At Ray White we have regularly cooked evening meals, each time we are inspired by the positivity of these people faced with adversity. Cooking and planning the meals has not only been extremely rewarding but it has also been great for team building and office morale.” – Tracy Logan, Ray White Wellington.

“If you like cooking, volunteering at RMHC New Zealand is a great opportunity to give back to the community. They have great facilities and the families are always very grateful for a warm meal at the end of a tough day. Cooking together is also a great way to get to know each other as a group.” – Ben Pfeifer, Xero
