It’s time to plan for Bazaar 2018!

Due to availability of the ACV, Bazaar 2018 is tentatively set for Sunday 16 December.
 
We invite all members who are interested to volunteer in Bazaar 2018 to the first preparation meeting of the year.  We particularly invite stallholders of Bazaar 2017 and potential stallholders of Bazaar 2018.  We would like to share your experience (good or bad).  If you have questions about how to organize the Goods stall (National stall) or the Restaurant stalls, NOW is the time to ask. NOW is the time to start working.
The Bazaar is UNWG’s biggest fund raiser of the year.  We raised more than €200,000 in Bazaar 2016.  With this money and other funds we raised through the year, we were able to support 33 projects in 2017. The Charity Review Committee is hard at work to process over 200 proposals this year. 

We look forward to volunteering with you in Bazaar 2018!

Ruiqing Zhou, Bazaar 2018 Chairwoman
