Nearly new sales are NCT’s biggest fundraising events, but for you they could give extra cash in your pocket from selling unwanted items, and for our buyers there are bargains galore to be had!

Twice yearly the Hackney NCT (HNCT) holds a nearly new table-top sale for local families to sell good quality, second hand baby and children’s items. Goods on sale include clothes, toys, books, nursery equipment and maternity wear. Local NCT volunteers also bake and sell cakes alongside refreshments as an additional fundraiser for the Charity.

At our last event, we raised over £1,000 for the NCT and 20 families pocketed some cash from selling their unwanted goods to the 200 plus people who came through the door.

The event is typically held on a Saturday afternoon in Spring and again in the Autumn. Dates and event venue are posted on our branch homepage at least six weeks in advance and table hire bookings can then be made via completing the booking form (see our branch homepage).

Entry to the sale is open to the general public and suggested donation of £2 per person, or £3 per family, is taken at the door. Any general enquiries, or if you would like to volunteer to help organise the event, help on the day or bake a cake, contact Jo at
