With many families tightening their belts, NCT Nearly New Sales, sponsored by Persil-Bio, offer an affordable alternative to trawling the high street for pricey products. They are great news for eco-conscious parents too, preventing over 300 tonnes of baby clothes and equipment ending up in landfill each year.


NCT Nearly New Sales raise over £1 million every year to help our branches provide face-to-face support to parents on their doorsteps, as well as funding helplines, breastfeeding counselling, free information and many more services.


The hall was jam-packed with sellers proudly displaying their wares on tables,” said Jules Attiwell from Bristol after attending her first Sale. “After half an hour we were proud owners of a handheld games console with six games, an unopened talking book, the obligatory cuddly toy to add to the mountain at home and three chocolate brownies, and including the pound entrance fee we spent just £9! It was just buzzing, and so were we by the time we left – recommend it for both buyers and sellers alike!”
