Scout out the deals at Ballincollig Bazaar

Wednesday, 29th November, 2017 5:28pm

Well, you might be in luck. This year the Ballincollig Bazaar, run by the Ballincollig Scout Group, returns for its 32nd year with a range of weird and wonderful gifts on offer for all ages.

“The Bazaar is a Christmas tradition in Ballincollig,” says Lisa O’Sullivan of Ballincollig Scout Group.

“We have great support from everyone in Ballincollig and lots of wonderful regulars that attend and support us every year.”

This year’s event will feature a Spin the Wheel and auction, a toy stall, bric-a-brac, books and games. The ever popular Scouts’ cake stall will also make a return for another year, while local chipper The Fry will once again be supplying food to all the helpers and attendees on the day. There may also be a special visit to the children from Santa himself.

“A lot of work goes in to organising and running the Bazaar,” Lisa said. “We have a fantastic parents and friends section in our scout group and they work closely with our Group Leader Pam Cullen and our section leaders to make sure everything is ready for the big day. A huge thanks to Fr George for letting us have the use of the Community Hall every year and for his continued support for Ballincollig Scout Group.”

“We would also like to especially thank all of the businesses in Ballincollig that continue to support the Ballincollig Scout Group every year. Spot prizes, donations and offers of help, the goodwill and support we receive is amazing.

“Some of those that help out at the Bazaar every year no longer have children in the group but they continue to support us in any way they can.”

The Ballincollig Scout Group Bazaar takes place on Sunday 3 December from 2-6pm. Admission is €2 and children are free.
