CITY CHARITIES and mums are being invited to join a new scheme which has been launched in Coventry after first appearing on hit TV show Dragons’ Den.
Founded by busy mum of two Cath Harrop in Wimbledon in 2011, the Mum2Mum market brings together parents to sell unwanted items face to face.
The event provides the opportunity for parents to make money selling their outgrown baby and children’s clothes, toys and equipment to other families – while buyers can make some serious savings.
With at least 20 new stalls available at every Mum2Mum market, Coventry mum Zoe Seville-Edden has spearheaded the Coventry launch and is hoping a range of items will create an ideal networking group for mums living in the city.
Furthermore, Zoe is offering free stalls to charities who would sell their unwanted items in order to raise vital funds.
Zoe said: “I saw Cath Harrop talking about Mum2Mum markets on Dragons’ Den and knew I wanted to be a part of it, it’s a superb idea.
“There’s definitely a need for a community event like this in Coventry.
“I’m excited to be giving parents in Coventry the opportunity to buy great quality second hand good or make some cash from their outgrown children’s items.
“I wish there had been a networking group like this in Coventry when my daughter was a baby.”
The next Mum2Mum networking event will take place at the Massey Ferguson Club on Broad Lane on Sunday (September 11) from 2pm until 4pm.
Admission is £2 on the door, kids enter for free.
Among charities being supported at the event are Cancer Research UK and the Mercia MS Therapy Centre.
