Volunteering at the Cotton Tree Markets

By supporting the Cotton Tree Markets (CTM) you’re not only supporting the Sunshine Coast’s local designers, you are also directly helping one of the Sunshine Coast’s most respected cancer charities. 

Bloomhill runs the Cotton Tree Markets, held each Sunday.  Revenue from the stallholder site fees is used to support the services and programs offered at our Wellness Centre in Buderim.

You can play an important role in supporting the CTM transport and market stall logistics or by engaging with the community to spread the word about our client services, volunteer recruitment and fundraising activities.  

Together you can help support our mission to help make the lives of people living with cancer just that little bit better, by raising awareness and funds that help break down barriers to accessing essential cancer treatment and support. 

It takes a Village!

The Cotton Tree Markets is one of our largest volunteer supported social enterprise initiatives. And it takes a large number of volunteers with varied skill sets to make the experience fun for all while also supporting a great cause!

As we look to reopen the markets, post-COIVD-19, we are in need of a team of 24 motivated volunteers who are enthusiastic about early mornings and keeping socially connected with their community in a fun and COVID-safe way.

We are looking to roster teams of 3-4 volunteers on rotation - so you will still have plenty of Sundays to yourself!

There are a number of different volunteer roles linked to the markets, such as:

  • Driving Bloomhill van as instructed by Cotton Tree Market Consultant
  • Setup of Bloomhill marquee (must be physically fit to carry out this role)
  • Traffic management and first aid at the market site
  • Manning Bloomhill marquee and cute-as-a-button Community Engagement Trailer (providing information about our services and answering volunteer related enquires)
  • COVIDSafe stewards to help maintain physical distancing and safe social connection
  • Social media and community promotion
