TO REGISTER AS A SELLER OR VOLUNTEER, OR FOR MORE INFO EMAIL- firstname.lastname@example.org
Come and bag a bargain on our vast selection of good quality Nearly New Items, or have a clear out and make some extra pennies while supporting a local charity!!
This year, 2015, the sale dates are Saturday 14 March and Saturday 10 October, and registration is now open for the March sale. As always seller places are limited so please get in touch ASAP if you would like to sell again or want to register for the first time.
The sale (NNS) is particularly important to us this year, as we have just established two key projects in the Preston & Fylde area- Breastfeeding support training and a Baby Bundles Scheme, which recycles generous donations into emergency packs of toiletries, clothing and equipment to deliver to local pregnant women and families who are really struggling.
More information on the Baby Bundles project can be found on the new dedicated Facebook page.
The NNS is our biggest fundraiser and ensures these projects, as well as the other services we offer at the branch such as weekly support groups, can carry on helping local parents into the future.
Of course, to make the sale a success we need your help! Everything we do at the branch, including the sales, is 100% powered by hard working, dedicated, lovely volunteers (if we do say so ourselves!), and we need a team of at least 50 to help the sale go smoothly on the day (especially during the sale itself and after, to keep to queues short and ensure sellers get their items returned in a timely manner).
We need volunteers from 08:00 - 16:30 on Saturday 14 March, mainly 11:00 - 16:00 to cover the sale time. We have pizza after the sale finishes at 14:00, and any volunteer who gives 3 hours or more will be entitled to early bird shopping from 11:00 before the sale opens, and will also be entered into the volunteer raffle (prizes to be revealed soon!).
We are the only charity sale in town, among many commercial ones, so if you would like to lend a hand to help us support local families, have a fun day out with other local parents and get the chance to get first pick of the bargains, please let us know when you are able to volunteer!
We are up to so much these days at the branch, take a peek at our main branch Facebook page to see what we've got on and share with your friends.
