Nearly New Sales
Our Nearly New ticketed and Table Top Sales are an opportunity for parents to sell/buy good quality nearly new items of clothes, toys and equipment. Baby items are often in good condition as they only used for a very short time, so the sales are a great opportunity to recycle, enable sellers to make some money for their items, buyers to get some bargains as well as raise funds for the Branch. Win! Win!
We also run other events such as children’s hairdressing, Cheeky Monkeys Parties, Bake Club and many more! Just keep an eye on our Events and Facebook pages for more information.
