Oxfam Trailwalker 2022 New Plymouth Event

Wendy Richards from Volunteering New Plymouth

UPDATE: At this stage we are continuing with the plan that we will be in Taranaki in March.
Roses are red, and New Zealand is too, so here's a volunteers update for you!

With the announcement that all of New Zealand is moving to Red, you might be rightly asking if the Oxfam Trailwalker event will be going ahead?

Yes! We are still working under the assumption that a physical, in-person Oxfam Trailwalker will be taking place in Taranaki in March 2022.

So thank you for already registering, nothing needs to change (unless you require changes).

Oxfam Trailwalker’s purpose is to help raise money for people across the globe in vulnerable situations and we are very grateful for the energy, time and support that you give to make the event possible.

Kia kaha

Volunteers needed for Oxfam Trailwalker 2022!
Oxfam Trailwalker (March 26 – 27) is the ultimate team challenge event that changes lives one step at a time. We simply could not run Oxfam Trailwalker without the help of our awesome volunteers.
By volunteering at Oxfam Trailwalker, your contribution helps raise funds for Oxfam’s programmes that keep girls in school, improve water and sanitation and create a just and sustainable world, now and for future generations.

If you’re not ready to walk 50km or 100km, volunteering is an excellent way to be a part of Oxfam Trailwalker and help our mission to end the injustice of poverty. You will be making a difference, helping out at Oxfam Aotearoa’s biggest fundraising event, supporting more than 1,200 participants to reach the finish line. At the same time, you’ll meet new people, enjoy the beauty of the Taranaki region and be part of the team that is behind this huge outdoor event!

We are looking to fill a range of positions during the event weekend 25-27 March 2022.

Key roles:
• Registration support
• Courier
• Trail Marshal
• Finish Line Chute Crew
• Finish Line Team Caller
• Finish Line MC Assistant

In return you will receive an Oxfam Trailwalker Volunteer gift pack, a volunteer certificate and the amazing and inspiring experience of being part of the largest team challenge in New Zealand!
If putting a smile on others’ faces spending a day outdoors and helping at an event with a purpose sounds like you, then sign up to be an Oxfam Trailwalker Volunteer today!
You choose what you would like to do, and for how long! Have any questions? Check out our website for more information at oxfamtrailwalker.org.nz... or send an email to the Oxfam team (otwvolunteer@oxfam.org.nz) or call us on 0800 600 700.

What do you think?


Did you know over a quarter of us who now call Aotearoa New Zealand home were born overseas? We have one of the highest populations of people born outside NZ in the OECD and collectively we speak more than 160 different languages.

We want to understand what you think about Aotearoa New Zealand’s increasing multicultural society and the benefits and challenges that it brings and to say thanks for completing the survey, you can go in the draw to win a share of prizes. T&Cs apply.
