For decades, bazaars have been one of the main fundraising activities for the Daily Worker and now the Morning Star. Each city would have neighbourhood events throughout the year. The highlight though would be a grand city centre Christmas bazaar.
In Glasgow, we’re revived the tradition in a way which combines both the earlier formats. For the last 15 years, Morning Star supporters have been holding Christmas bazaars in a many of the city’s neighbourhoods. This year’s was held in Partick on 12 December and netted £1,100 for the people’s paper. As well as fundraising the event was an opportunity to promote the paper widely through door to door leafleting, posters and street sales.
