You can now register to volunteer online.
There are lots of different ways that you can help support the branch.
On the day of the sale
Every Nearly New Sale needs about 70 volunteers to make it happen, so we’re really grateful for all offers to help out. The sale is run entirely by volunteers - so volunteering really does make a difference to the success of the day and to the money that the branch makes for future activity.
The sale is a great way to meet other parents and branch members but you dont have to be a member to volunteer. It is great fun helping at the sale and doing your bit to help support parents both locally and nationally. Plus there is the added bonus that all volunteers get the chance to buy at the sale preview before the doors open to the public.
- If you can't help on the day can you help us set up on the Friday night before the sale instead? If you can, to say thank you, we will still let you in to shop at the sale preview.
- We also need help with our refreshments. Can you help us to stock the refreshments stall? Refreshments raise about £350 for the branch each year, so please bake (or buy!) a cake and bring it along with you on the day. Every fairy cake counts!
- Do you have access to a van to help us with moving rails?
- If you enjoy your time at the sale but think that it could be run better then why not join the team? We are a friendly bunch of mums who are always keen to see new faces at our meetings. You don't need to have had any prior event planning experience you just need to be enthusiastic.
Help by donating items for the NCT to sell
If you donate clothes/equipment/toys/books to the organising team for us to sell on the NCT’s behalf, 100% of the money raised goes to branch to assist with our fundraising.
