The Wirral Bazaar Committee is made up of Jennie Corlett, Alison Tongue, Carolyn Tallents, Ruth Walker, Ann Wild, Catherine Sandow and Kate Willliams.
Sitting down with a group of women who have dedicated the last 12 months of their lives to producing one of the Wirral’s most successful annual fundraisers it’s easy to see why the Bazaar they organise is 26 years old and still going strong.
A Personal Journey
Each arrived at a seat on the Wirral Committee through her own personal journey. Some have lost loved ones, friends or work colleagues to cancer; some have fought the disease themselves. Between them they have a passion and a vision; a world without one of its cruellest diseases. In short these ladies mean business – but that doesn’t mean they don’t have fun amidst all the hard work. To date they have added a much-needed £290K to the charity’s research fund, provided a valuable retail forum for small businesses and made life-long friends along the way.
We are extremely passionate and have a clear vision; a world without one of its cruellest diseases.
Shopping, having fun & beating cancer
This year Wirral Bazaar celebrates its 26th Anniversary with its new fresh feel and a bigger and better event all under one enormous roof. The venue becomes a shoppers paradise for two days with over 2,000 visitors enjoying a variety of unique gifts from over 60 stalls not on the high street.
Funding the research to beat cancer
All money raised from the Bazaar has been donated to North West Cancer Research Incorporating Clatterbridge Cancer Research (NWCR) which facilitates cancer research projects across the North West including those at nearby University of Liverpool.
