A frequent conversation of mums with small children revolves about what can we do instead of going back to work to earn some money around our children, and one day during such a conversation our NCT group realised that we actually know quite a few people who have set up their own businesses since having children, and that we should support them as much as possible – and so the idea for Molly’s Market was born.
All the stalls are run by mums who have set up businesses, either things they make themselves or “shop” businesses like Usborne books, so there will be a wide range of goods for sale from handmade clothes, cosmetics and toiletries, children’s books, jewellery, crafts, greetings cards and gifts, to delicious homemade cakes – “byMum’sforeveryone“.
Entry to the market is free, with any profits going to Sebastian’s Action Trust – a charity which provides support for families of seriously-ill children. They have the UK’s only purpose-built facility that offers respite holidays to very sick children and their families, near North Waltham, which enables precious time to be spent together, a cause both local and close to our hearts as we all have small children.
Refreshments will be available and a raffle of items from the stalls, both in aid of Sebastian’s Action Trust. Zingtastic will be providing a taster of their music classes to entertain any little ones, and KMS are providing taster massages for grown ups. And to top it off, a swap shop where you can pick up some children’s clothes for free, and donate your unwanted clothes!
Please come along to support some local businesses, raise money for a great charity and get a head start on your Christmas shopping!
