Dorking NCT Nearly New Sales

Dorking NCT branch hold 4 Nearly New Sales per year at North Holmwood Village Hall. 

Come for some bargains and a slice of cake!  Email NNS.Dorking@nct.org.uk if you wish to book a table.  A few more helpers on the day and any cake donations would be appreciated.

We have introduced a new queue system.  Bring your NCT membership card with you to gain advance entrance at 10am.  Without a membership card, you will have to wait until 10:15am for entrance.

NOTE *rules on commission for large equipment*
If you help on the day for 3 hours or more you can sell large equipment and pay no commission, if you already have a table booked the commission for you has been reduced to 20%, if you don't have time to help or have a table you can 'drop and run' for 30% commission - ALL profits go to charity.
Please contact us for a list of what can be sold in the large equipment section.

SELLERS' NOTICEBOARD

We are trialling a notice board of items for sale, which will be prominently displayed at our Nearly New Sale.
This can be used for any individual items but we specifically recommend it for things that are too big to bring to the sale (garden slide, sandpits, etc) or for items that fall outside the remit of an NCT sale (electrical equipment, carseats, etc).
All items sold through the notice board will constitute a private sale.  The NCT accepts no responsibility for any complaints about goods sold this way or any other problems between the buyer and seller.
To advertise on the notice board, please submit an advertisement up to A4 in size with a cheque for £5. (payable to NCT Dorking). For our records, please provide your name and contact details with any advertisement. No further commission is due, but we would hope you would consider donating a portion to the NCT.
A maximum of 4 items per advertisement.
All advertisements must clearly state "Any sale resulting from this advert will be a private arrangement between the advertiser and the purchaser, for which the NCT will not be responsible."
We recommend that you provide your contact details on tear-off strips on the bottom of your advertisement as well as putting them on the advertisement itself.  A clear photograph of each item will make it more eye-catching.  An example template may be found at the bottom of our NNS event details.
Advertisements should be sent with your payment to Robin Hill, Keppel Road, Dorking, RH4 1NG, to be received at least 3 days prior to the sale date.
The advert will go onto the board exactly as you provide it so please make sure you check before you send!

Online Fundraising

Many thanks to those of you who have done your online shopping via our original BuyAt webshop which has raised over £100 to date since September 2007.  We have now added another way to raise funds for the NCT online.  Easysearch, a search engine with a difference!  When you search the Web with easysearch instead of Google or any other search engine, you’ll raise funds for us with every search you make! Check out our unique easysearch page at http://nctdorking.easysearch.org.uk and use it every time you search the Web.

Easysearch comes with its own webshop, which has links to many more retailers than our existing webshop, such as John Lewis, Boden, Argos, Interflora, Itunes, House of Fraser, LastMinute.com, Debenhams, BHS, BumpTo3, ToysRUs, and GLTC, plus lots of special offers for the shopper and seems more user-friendly.  You can search either by retailer or for a specific product.  We have therefore decided to swap to this new webshop which can be found at http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/nctdorking  We hope everyone approves of the change, but rest assured, our original webshop will still continue to exist, just we won't be actively promoting it, to avoid any potential confusion.

We are very pleased to let you know that Easyfundraising decided to choose Dorking NCT's website as their "website of the month" for March 2009 and consequently donated £25 to Dorking NCT.


Dorking NCT JustGiving Page

Dorking NCT now has their own JustGiving page which will enable supporters to donate money online directly.

We will be encouraging our supporters to use this new facility as much as possible as those paying tax will be able to use Gift Aid to make their donation go even further.
