Voluntary Action Orkney’s (VAO) popular Charities Christmas Bazaar is set to return to the local festive calendar after a two-year, COVID-enforced break.

Around fifteen charities will come together to sell crafts, home baking and a whole lot more at the fund-raising event, being held in Kirkwall on Saturday 26 November.

The bazaar is being staged in the St Magnus Centre for the very first time, with stalls set up throughout the whole building.

And to warm everyone up and help fuel the Christmas spirit on the day, VAO will be selling hot drinks in the centre’s foyer, with a donation by Tesco meaning all proceeds from the stall can go towards the cost of running the event.

Morven Brooks, VAO’s Chief Executive, said: “The Christmas Bazaar has traditionally been a popular and important event for local charities, but naturally it was put on hold due to the covid pandemic. I’m therefore delighted that VAO has been able to bring it back this year as it really helps charities boost their funds.

The bazaar will open to the public at 11:00am on 26 November, so why not drop in for a little Christmas shopping or simply treat yourself and contribute to a good cause at the same time?
