Dear Members, Stallholders and Volunteers,

On behalf of the bazaar team, I would like to thank you all for your continued support, enthusiasm, dedication and passion that makes the IWC charity bazaar such a success. This being our 20th Bazaar shows that members, embassies, volunteers and donors, past and present are committed to ensure that the biggest fundraising event in Bulgaria, will continue year after year, to raise the much needed funds for the IWC charity foundation.

I would also like to thank the bazaar team, the board and the office staff for their hard work and support, together, we managed to get the bazaar up and running!

I am writing this in the lead up to the bazaar and have no idea how much money was raised or how well attended the bazaar was, all I know is that every single one of the volunteers poured their heart and soul into the bazaar and through all the hard work, frustrations and tears (I am sure there were some!) we all achieved one of the most memorable days of the year.

With 46 country stalls, representing over 50 countries this year, we had plenty to offer the people of Sofia and beyond and if past years are anything to go by, they will show their appreciation by showing up in their thousands to spend their money knowing it will be used by the IWC foundation to support numerous charity projects around Bulgaria, this event really is a win-win for everyone involved!

I hope to see you at our special coffee morning, for you the members, stallholders and volunteers, to relax, chat and celebrate our fantastic achievement.

I wish you all peace and happiness at this festive period and look forward to a prosperous New Year for all.

Angela Bird
IWC Charity Bazaar Coordinator 2014
