On Saturday the 19th of May 2018, The World's Biggest Car Boot Sale will take place at Newcastle Entertainment Centre.
The event takes place twice a year, in May and October, and is a fundraising event for Hunter Life Education, an independent organisation that reaches over 30,000 children in Newcastle and the Hunter Region every year.
This is a great opportunity to declutter and make some extra cash, or grab some second-hand bargains while helping a fantastic organisation (and the environment) at the same time.
The event opens at 8am and finishes at 2pm, and this year will include:
A huge number of stalls with new and second-hand items
Free presentations on how to lead a reduced-waste lifestyle
Appearances by Healthy Harold and Big Dog
