KAR Christmas Bazaar 2015 – Review

KAR Christmas Bazaar 2015

By Margaret Sheard….

Unfortunately I was not able to attend the KAR Christmas Bazaar this year which was held at Teachers’ Hotel on Saturday 5th December.  From the information received from KAR following the event, I am sure I missed a really good time and you can see what they have said about the results below.   Never mind, next year I will be there.

Although the sun shone it was a cold and windy day when KAR held its 17th annual Christmas Bazaar on Saturday December 5th.Santa's here

Despite the weather the crowds poured into The Teachers’ Hotel and dug deep into their pockets to purchase the items on sale or try to win prizes.

Bric-a-brac, toys and games, handbags, jewellery, toiletries, linens, Xmas decorations & wreaths, cakes, mince pies, pet products and gifts all just flew out of the door. The Tombola table soon emptied of prizes and tickets for the Grand draw sold like hot cakes. Mulled wine helped warm folk up and children visited Santa Claus in his grotto. Christmas dinners for the Rescue Centre cats and dogs were sponsored and some of the Centre dogs attended hoping to find a new home.

At the end of the day a new record breaking total of 25,040TL was the incredible amount taken. Just over 50 wonderful KAR volunteers worked to set everything up and manned the stalls.

Ready for the crowds

Our most heartfelt thanks go to each of them, all the local businesses who donated prizes, the cake bakers, the  staff at Teachers’ Hotel and of course the public for attending and making the day such a great success.

Many of the winners of the Grand Draw prizes were present at the event, nearly all others have been notified. A list of the winning numbers is available at the KAR office.
