We have exciting Nearly New Sale news!
Since 2010, the nearly new sales have been run by a small voluntary organisation donating all of their proceeds to Tiny Lives. The team have been talking to us about the future of the Nearly New Sales, as they no longer have the capacity to manage this growing enterprise due to other commitments and the amazing increase in donations and success of the sales (thanks to wonderful supporters like you!). We are therefore excited to announce that, as as of 2020, the Nearly New Sales will be ran by the in-house Tiny Lives Team, rather than the current volunteer team. We’ll be working closely with the current team to enable a smooth handover and there will still be plenty of familiar faces at the sales for the foreseeable future!
We’re excited to be part of the next phase of the nearly new sales, and this change will allow us to develop them even further. We want to take this chance to say a huge THANK YOU to the fantastic volunteer team for their hard work and dedication over the years, which has shaped the sales into the amazing events they are and raised the staggering amount of £87,800 to help babies and their families at the Neonatal Unit at the RVI.
We’ll announce further details as the changes are rolled out but in the meantime, it’s business as usual, and donations can still be dropped off with the current team by contacting them on their Facebook page or website.
Remember, this weekend’s Sale is a Christmas special with plenty of toys, taking place on Saturday 16th November, 10am – 1pm at Trinity Church, Gosforth.
