Halloween came to Bellapais Abbey
Sadly I was unable to go to Bellapais on the 27th October when there was a concert at Bellapais Abbey which hosted “A Halloween Happening” on the last day of Kurban Bayram to benefit the Lefkosa, Çocuk Yuvasi-Children’s Shelter.
International Opera Star, Grammy List Nominee and the Cyprus Turksoy Opera Days rep for 2012, Demet George Mustafaoğlu with Maestro Rauf Kasimov presented “Music From Around The World” with a costumed and staged concert for all the family.
This was reported to have been a highly successful and entertaining event and a total donation of 3.000 TL was raised for the refurbishment of the Lefkosa, Çocuk Yuvasi-Children’s Shelter and it is hoped further donations will be made and anybody wishing to help should call Hatice Sahil Kerimgil on (0090) 533 860 3630.
I understand that the Children in Need Foundation are also going to lend a helping hand with this important project and further information will be available soon and this is excellent news .
There is even more good news as I am also pleased to be able to include some pictures which have been shared from Facebook by Demetra George and Hatice Sahil Kerimgil which shows just how hard people work to help and improve the plight of others through these types of events and long may they continue with the support of you, our readers.
