Volunteers needed!!!


We are not so far away from our Nearly New Sale on October 7th at Matthew Arnold School, Oxford and we need to find some help!

Some of the key roles we need to fill include:


  • Online publicity coordinator - manage online publicity and make sure key messages go out at the right time. Contact nurseries, baby groups etc to help spread the word.
  • Print Publicity coordinator - keep track of where our posters need to go, make posters available for volunteers to put up and keep track of when they do.
  • Advertising coordinator - contacting potential sponsors to offer advertising at the sale and keep track of when items are sent. Find potential goodies to add to shoppers bags. 

There are also lots of other things to be done and if you think you might be able to help, with some of this please do get in touch at nearlynewsale.oxford@nct.org.uk or via our Facebook page.
