Bazaar 2009

Once again, and after all the hard work of our members and friends and families of the British Ladies Association, the annual charity bazaar was very successful. We would also like to thank all those individuals and companies who donate to the different stalls – especially to the tombola; the excellent prizes to be won on the tombola draw much interest from the public.

The used clothes stall does an excellent job, particularly as clothes and other saleable items are sold all year round in the Charity Shop which is run by a group of dedicated British Ladies. An enormous amount of hard work goes into running the shop, and this ensures an ongoing income so that donations to charities can be made throughout the year.

After the Bazaar, we were able, once again, to make immediate donations to the charities that we support. We would like to thank all those who are faithful to our event and come year after year to support us, thus enabling us to give funds to very worthy causes.

We would also like to say Thank You to all the generous donors who supported theĀ 2009 Charity Bazaar and whose names are on the attached list.
