Order of "sometimes" relative to the subject of a sentence in the passive voice?

I have a doubt that is the following one: I have two alternative sentence transformations of this sentence below and, I wonder if it is possible to write the adverb "sometimes" before the subject "the shopping" in the first sentence and, if its grammatically correct as a sentence that is transformed. On the other way round, I also would like to know if the second sentence is correct. Many thanks! > He sometimes does the shopping. (active voice) Sentence transformed:: - The shopping sometimes is done by him. (first option) - Sometimes, the shopping is done (by him). (second option)
