THOUSANDS of pounds were raised for charity at a nearly new sale in Rugby.

The event, which sold baby items, raised more than £2,500 for the National Childbirth Trust Rugby branch.

Organiser Vicky Shaw said: “It is the biggest fundraising event for our local NCT branch and we are thrilled to have raised over £2,500 for our charity.

“The money will go towards providing valuable services, classes, counselling, information and support to expectant and new parents. Like all local NCT activities, the sale was organised and run entirely by volunteers, and we would like to thank everyone who gave up their time to make it such a success.”

The next nearly new toy sale and autumn fair takes place on Sunday, November 20, from 1.30pm – 3pm at Dunchurch Village Hall.

NCT Rugby branch runs ante-natal and post-natal classes, home-birth and birth choices groups and a number of groups and social events for parents and their babies and toddlers. All of these are open to members of the NCT as well as non-members.
