Nearly New Sales are an important source of fundraising for the branch.
Every Nearly New Sale needs about 20 volunteers to make it happen, so we’re really grateful for all offers to help out, if only for a couple of hours. The sale is run entirely by volunteers - so every little helps in making a difference to the success of the day and to the money made for future branch activities.
Volunteering at a sale is a great way to meet other branch members, and they’ve even been known to be great fun! Plus there’s the added bonus that all volunteers get the chance to buy at the pre-sale, before the doors open to the public. Plus there's reduced commission if you are selling your own items. Could you help with any of the below?
•Collecting rails/items from storage facility (needs 1-2 strong people & estate car/people carrier, Fri eve)•Checking items are suitable for sale (Fri eve)
•Unpacking goods & setting them out for display (Fri eve)
•Setting up the hall for the sale (Fri eve)
•Serving on the tills (Sat)
•Providing refreshments for helpers and buyers (Sat)
•Sorting and scanning labels (Sat)
•Sorting unsold items after the sale (Sat)
•Tidying & sweeping up after the sale (Sat)
•Dropping off rails/items to storage facility (needs 1-2 strong people & estate car/people carrier, Sat)
If you can't help on the day, why not help us stock the refreshments stall? Refreshments raise around £350 for the branch each year, so please bake (or buy) a cake and bring it along to the sale on the day - every fairy cake counts!
If you donate clothes/equipment/toys/books to the organising team for us to sell on the NCT’s behalf, then 100% of the money raised goes towards our fundraising.
Please contact NNS.email@example.com if you could volunteer, your help will be much appreciated!
