A first time mum found the cost of baby items so expensive she joined an organisation that specialises in organising second-hand selling events.

To keep costs down, Helena Stanley, 35, of Amersham Road, Harold Hill, tried second-hand selling websites but found the description of goods did not match up to reality.

She joined Cheeki Monkeys - organisers of markets where parents can buy or sell quality used children’s toys, clothes and equipment.

“After having my son in October 2014, I was really shocked at the cost of baby items,” she said. “Especially as most of them were only used for a matter of months.

“I then saw an advert for a Cheeki Monkeys opportunity, so I guess I’m now what they call a mumtrepreneur.

“I joined a month ago and have my first event on Saturday.”

Parents can book a stall at the event in Hornchuch Sports Centre, Hornchurch Road, Hornchurch, to sell pre-loved goods for £10 plus VAT.

A raffle for the Neonatal Unit at Queens Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford will also be held.

Prizes include Marsh Farm Ticets, a course of baby massage classes and a Knockerball session for 10.

The event runs between 2pm and 4pm with an admission fee of £1, children are free.

To book a stall call Helena on 07951469301 or visit cheekimonkeys.co.uk
