Create from junk

We've got lots of great ideas to rethink, re-use and recycle. Drop in soon.

Become Involved


We are always keen to hear from people interested in giving us a hand. If you have some time to spare, come in and volunteer.

As a volunteer you receive a happy stimulating place to work. Whether it is only a few hours a day or just a month, we would love to have you on board. Volunteers can receive a free fill-a-bag. We also provide Tea and Coffee, and have special events for everyone who supports us with their time.

Volunteering can be a great way of starting your work experience or a way of gaining confidence to get yourself back into paid work. We are happy to provide you with a reference to help you in your quest for employment. Please give us a call or pop in to discuss how we can help each other.


We are run by a voluntary management committee. This provides governance and support for our two paid employees. Our meetings are held monthly, on a Wednesday evening. The only requirement is that you are a current financial member and have a passion for what Creative Junk is all about. All financial members are welcome to come to our meetings.

If you are interested we would love to hear from you.

    I am applying to volunteer in you Addington, Christchurch shop, which I saw advertised on Volunteering Canterbury. I consider myself quite creative and am good with being around people, although I don’t have relative experience I am excited to learn and grow within the community.

    Hi Team,

    My name is Hugh Munro. I work at an NGO called Youth Pathways. We often have young people on our program that need to gain work experience and sometimes complete community service obligations. I am just emailing you to see whether there might be any opportunities for volunteer work that would suit young people between the age of about 14 and 20. We would have staff that would come with the young people to work with them as well as supervise them.

    If you think we might be able to work together I would love to hear from you!

    Kind Regards,
    Hugh Munro
