  • Garage Sale Fundraiser

    Here at the NQCC office, we’ve taken advantage of the cooler weather with our own version of a ‘Spring Clean’. This has resulted in a sizeable pile of goods that we no longer require the use of. We thought it would be a great idea to invite our members to have their own spring clean and donate their unwanted or unused items to make one big community garage sale to raise funds for NQCC!

    The date for the garage sale has been set for Saturday 15th June from 7am.

    Why not organise your own spring clean and donate your unwanted goods?

    Please have all potential donations dropped off to our office by Thursday 13th June ready for processing and pricing. If the office is open and your items are manageable, please bring them to the veranda. If the office is closed or your items are bulky, please leave them under the house.

    It would help us if you could please provide donations:
    • in a relatively clean condition, freshly wiped over/rinsed out etc;
    • parts of a set all bundled together;
    • if an item is broken but has value, please include a note stating what is broken for us to attach to the item;
    • if a kit has something missing, please include a note stating what is missing and if it is critical to use of the item;
    • including batteries if battery operated (we only have a small supply at the office to demonstrate to customers on the sale day);
    • clothes in a laundered condition and bundled by size;
    • shoes in a clean and tidy condition and bundled by size;
    • please include a light bulb in any lamps etc to be plugged in and demonstrated as working on the day;
    The type of items we would like to see donated are:
    • Furniture, any size & type
    • Linen; Curtains & other soft furnishings
    • Household items, giftware & décor
    • Office items, School supplies & Stationary
    • Toys & Games, all ages
    • Arts & Crafts, all ages
    • Tools, Gadgets & Electronics
    • Clothing, Shoes & Accessories
    • Hobbies, Music, Books, Posters
    • Sporting & Mobility Equipment
    • Kids & Babies items (car seats must be in date)
    • Pet items, Plants (labelled please)
    • Excess fresh seasonal produce

    If you are unsure if the item you wish to donate can be accepted by us, please reach out to Crystal by email or phone with your concern and we’ll get back to you.

    If you need someone to collect your items because you don’t have transport or the item is too large for your transport, please have them ready and contact Crystal at least one week before the event and we will try to arrange a volunteer to collect them.

    Keen to assist on the day? Many hands make light work! We'll provide snacks and cold drinks. Sign up for a shift below or email us with your availability.
