Press release from Iktisatbank …..
Following the success of previous years, once again with your help, Iktisatbank supported the Children in Need Foundation Christmas Gift Campaign. Every year the gifts that are donated to the charity are distributed to the underprivileged children of Northern Cyprus at Christmas time.
Iktisatbank asked members of the public who wished to, to provide a small gift donation to this very worthwhile cause, gift drop off locations were Iktisatbank Karaoğlanoğlu, Karakum, Osmanpaşa, Famagusta and Güzelyurt branches, the last day for collection was Monday 19th of December and Iktisatbank are very pleased to announce that over 175 gifts were donated to this very worthwhile charity making Christmas this year very special for the children in their care. It is important to remember that a small toy can make a big difference to a child’s life.
The Charity have worked hard over the years to improve the lives and provide support to underprivileged children across the country, despite the fact that the Children in Need Foundation will no longer be operating as such. Iktisatbank together with some of the members of the foundation will be looking to continue the gift drive in 2017 and beyond.
Natalie Haigh Supervisor of Multicultural Banking Department at Iktisatbank said: “It is always a pleasure that Iktisatbank are able to contribute to this very worthy charity, helping make this special time of year even more special for those children in our community who have a variety of special needs. The Children in Need Foundation has done a fantastic job in helping these children and it is great that we can assist in such a way and I would like to thank all those people of our community for their generosity.”
