Oswestry Town Market is hosting the second ‘Charity Market’ of the year on Friday the 1st of September at the Bailey Head, with free stalls for participating charities.

Charities can use these stalls to raise awareness, offer advice, recruit volunteers, raise funds or however they wish. The Qube, Horatio’s Garden, Hope House and Shropshire Recovery will all be there, among many others.

We will also see the return of the teddy bear zip wire from Guildhall by the Crafty Knitters in aid of the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. Oswestry’s knitting group has been busy knitting ‘Air Ambulance Teddies” which will be available to purchase for £5 from their market stall. Each teddy purchased will have a ride on the zip wire from the top of the Guildhall, down to the Bailey Head where it will then receive a certificate.

Oswestry Town Market is a wonderful place to shop and where small, independent businesses thrive. Markets have always provided a wider value to our historic town and are a great arena through which we can bring people together and support the community. Our Charity Markets play a key role in community engagement, and we hope residents and visitors will come along and support some fantastic local causes.
