The Wirral Bazaar started almost 30 years ago, born from a group of friends wanting to take action and help in the fight against cancer.
Today, the Wirral Bazaar Committee is made up of a small but dedicated group of volunteers – Kate Williams, Jennie Corlett, Alison Tongue, Ruth Walker, and Catherine Sandow – who work throughout the year to organise one of the Wirral’s most successful annual fundraisers.
The Committee is also supported by a huge and loyal group of friends, who over the years have given up their time to help – be it on the admission and raffle desks; serving teas, coffees and cakes; standing in the cold helping with the parking, or spreading the word.
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 funds to their chosen charities, 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
The Wirral Bazaar has been held in November for the past 27 years, and is a firm favourite in many of our visitors’ diaries.
Held in the Walled Garden Marquee at Thornton Manor, attracting over 70 stallholders and 3,500 visitors it is an event not to be missed.
Each year, the Committee work tirelessly to bring new and exciting stallholders to the Wirral Bazaar, ensuring that there is a wonderful variety of unique and beautiful gifts for all members of the family – including the dog!
With each stallholder donating 10% of their takings to the charity, every purchase you make makes a direct contribution to to the charity, so it’s guilt free shopping.
If you wish you can have a break and relax with a cup of tea or coffee, cake or light bite in our refreshments tent, whilst being entertained with live music. Or why not treat yourself to a glass of Prosecco!
The Wirral Bazaar is also proud to be a member of the Charity Fairs Association.
Funding the research to beat cancer
