Hi to everyone
As you are aware October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month worldwide. Whilst we have informed you about our forthcoming event in Girne on the 17 October, we do have a number of events in the following week to promote this very important time.
On Thursday 24 October in Lefkosa the Help Those With Cancer Association will be releasing Pink Balloons (as they have done in previous years). We would ask anyone who feels they would like to come to meet at 9.30am at Kugulu Park which is opposite the Turkish Embassy (close to Kyrenia Gate) to get their Pink Balloons. Then at 10am everyone will walk to the front of the parliament building and Raziye will call on a member of parliament to come out and she will tell them the needs of the Association.
Once the formalities are over all the balloons will be released infront of the parliament building. It is quite a spectacle and very moving. If people feel inclined to support we would suggest that they wear something pink on the day!
On Friday 25 October the Association is having a "Wear Something Pink Day" across the TRNC and Sue and I have been organising in the Girne and surrounding areras the schools and businesses to do just that and collect 5TL from each person for the charity. Some businesses are running events, which are detailed below and others are just asking everyone to turn up in something pink and raising funds that way. We are hoping for a great result and thank everyone in advance for their support on this day. We have attached a poster which gives a more visual idea of what we are doing..... If any business feel that they would like to participate on the day they will be very welcome. Just let Sue or Carole know that they are taking part - email@example.com
or call on 0533 8731693.The Stumble Inn
are putting on a 'Pink Night' in aid of HTWCA/Tulips to support Pink Friday on 25th October 2013.
Everyone is requested to wear something pink and donate 5tl to Tulips it can be a top, tie, scarf, jewellery etc (if you do not wear anything pink you may be fined!)
The Stumble Inn is sponsoring every draught Efes and Becks bought between 8pm and 9pm as your payment will be placed directly into our charity box!
You will be able to dance the night away with live music from the fabulous soul and motown singer Martin Costa (who will also be wearing pink)
A BBQ will be available from 7.30pm to 10pmCorner House Restaurant, Ozankoy
Are organising a Pink Night' for us in aid of HTWCA/Tulips to support Pink Friday on 25th October 2013.
Friday is their quiz night and on this occasion they will be asking everyone to wear something pink and donate 5TL.
They will also run a music quiz with a prize and all money raised from that quiz will go to Tulips.
There will be pink cocktails and pink wine plus anything else they can think of and a % of the sales of these drinks will come to Tulips.
There will also be a prize for the best dressed 'Pink' person.
Other Events, non-pink day related:
We also have an event taking place on the 29 October which is a Christmas Card making day which will be held at Pine Bay Hotel.
Start time will be 10.30am. Lunch is available and will be 15tl (with 5tl being donated to Tulips) and there will be a choice of the following:
1. Omelette and chips (Omelette can be plain, cheese, mushroom or cheese & mushroom)
2. Toasted sandwiches with either chips or salad and a soft drink (toasted sandwiches can be with white cheese or hellim cheese, tomato or a mixture)
We aim to finish at 3.30pm
We will provide all the equipment and materials however if anyone has a guillotine that they could bring that would be useful also if experienced card makers could also bring their own cutting mats etc so that we have enough to go around everyone as there will be some novices that will not have their own equipment.
Anyone wishing to attend, should email firstname.lastname@example.org
or call either Sue or myself on 0533 870 2281 or 0533 8731693 and could they let us know if they are planning on having lunch.
All cards made on the day will be sold at our Tulips stalls with all proceeds going to Help Those With Cancer Association.
Feel free to contact us if anything is not clear or you need further information, we are hoping to get this into the press for this coming Saturday to avoid any confusion regarding events taking place this week, so your help on that front would be very, very much appreciated.
Best wishes and thanks
Carole and Sue
