We have received some sad news from Carole King and Sue Tilt of Tulips about the sad loss of Evelyn (Evie) Cox who sadly lost her battle with cancer recently and they have asked us to convey their thanks for the donations which have been made in her memory.
“A truly wonderful supporter to Tulips, Evelyn Cox aka Evie, sadly passed away from cancer of the Oesophagus on 31st May 2013.
Both Evie and Gordon, of Lapta, regularly attended Friends Line Dancing events as Evie loved to dance the night away, they also attended all the local markets and could be found hunting out new authors and books as they were both avid readers of crime and mystery books.
On behalf of Help Those With Cancer Association/Tulips we would like say a special thank you to Gordon who insisted that any donations should be made to Tulips in Evie’s memory.
We also would like to thank all of the family and friends who gave so generously, not only at Evie’s funeral, but also all the friends that attended the Tuesday Quiz Night last week at Karsiyaka Park and donated all their prize money.
The total sum raised in memory of Evie was 1,501.85TL – thank you to everyone who contributed.”
