Childbirth Trust to hold nearly new sale

Cash-strapped parents and parents-to-be from all over Thurrock can find all the top quality baby clothes, toys and equipment they need at an upcoming NCT Nearly New Sale, and save around 70% on what they would cost brand new.

Well-established and trusted by over 200,000 parents who visit them every year, NCT Nearly New Sales represent the best sales of excellent quality used baby and children’s items.

NCT Thurrock Branch Nearly New Sale is on the 19th of May, from 10am-12pm at Brandon Groves Community Centre, South Ockendon, RM15 6TB.

The Thurrock branch of the NCT are also looking for more volunteers to help out on the day, even if you can just spare an hour or two, please get in touch with them. 

They would also like to appeal to any local businesses who may be able to help out providing lunch for the volunteers at the Nearly New Sale.

Your local NCT Nearly New Sale offers an affordable alternative to trawling the high street for pricey baby products. Meanwhile, families with baby goods they no longer need can ensure they go to a good home and make some cash at the same time.

Items must be in excellent condition, and sellers keep up to 75% of the proceeds while the rest is returned to fund NCT’s work.

NCT Nearly New Sales, sponsored by Persil-Bio, are the charity’s largest fundraiser, raising over £1 million every year to help support parents in their communities and through UK wide projects. They help NCT branches provide face-to-face support to parents on their doorsteps, as well as funding national helplines, breastfeeding counselling, training antenatal and postnatal teachers and many more services.


Cemay Ilgu, volunteer from the NCT Thurrock Branch, says: “NCT Nearly New Sales are a simple idea, with so many benefits. Some parents sell items they no longer need, others hunt for bargains, and whether you’re buying, selling or both you can be sure you’re helping to support other parents in Thurrock by funding NCT charity’s vital work.

The Sales are open to everyone, not just NCT members, so we hope to see you there!”
