For some time, TBBT has been wanting to develop a way to provide non food goods such as household and toiletries for our members.
We received some amazing donations from Amazon that raised the issue in our thinking as we needed to find a way to redistribute a huge array of goods from kettles to toys to protein powders. A lot of the products were quite 'niche' and we simply couldn't just put them in bags and push them out.
As always, we started to talk to our hubs and volunteers to see what they thought and the simple and resounding answer came back, "Have a Jumble Sale!".
So we launched TBBT jumble sales last week for our members, in Longsight and Sale Moore. The feedback was incredible and over the next few months we will be rolling them out across Greater Manchester with our hubs.
Over 100 families attended last week and the general feedback has been for us to come back and do more! We are thrilled by this new development and can't wait to do more.
