An NCT Nearly New Sale is a relatively simple and successful way of selling good quality items that you no longer use and raising money for the NCT (National Childbirth Trust). The NCT is a charity that works to enable all parents to have an experience of pregnancy, birth and early parenthood that enriches their lives and gives them confidence in being a parent.
  1. We offer information and support in pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood.
  2. We campaign to improve maternity care and ensure better services and facilities for new parents.
  3. We aim to give every parent the chance to make informed choices.
  4. We want to make sure that everyone has access to our services and activities.

Sale Information

All our branch sales are table top sales which means that the seller pays a fixed fee in advance then take home all the takings they make on the day. Sellers have to attend for the duration of the sale and are responsible for labelling, displaying and selling their items.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is also a large items area for items that will not fit on the table or if the seller does not have any other items to sell. The large items are sold by a branch volunteer. Sellers pay a small fixed, non-refundable fee to display their item/s and take home any proceeds minus a small commission at the end of the sale. It is not necessary to have booked a table in the sale to register a large item.
