Breast Cancer Awareness Month
By Margaret Sheard
Most people probably have relatives or friends and acquaintances who have had the unfortunate experience of having to deal with cancer in some form or another and Help Those with Cancer Association (Tulips) and their dedicated supporters work tirelessly to help anyone who falls victim to cancer in North Cyprus.
We have received the following information from Carole King and Sue Tilt who work so hard to raise funds for Tulips.
As you probably already know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and there are a number of initiatives taking place both in Girne and Lefkosa. We have already instigated the Breast Cancer Health Checks at Near East Hospital and we are now having a Pink Day to raise funds in Girne. This will take place on Thursday 17th October (and yes we do know it is a Bayram, all the better for us). There will be 8 of us all dressed in pink (and one brave male is included in that) – and we have permission to collect money from the Girne Belediye down to the Dome and around into the Harbour. We will be starting at 10.30 from the Belediye and we have also organised a Lokma stall and a Tulips Stall to be sited outside the Belediye offices.
We are also selling keyrings for Breast Cancer Awareness month on our Stalls at Chateau Lambousa, Lemar Catalkoy, and Best Seller Book Stores in Karakum and Alsancak. These are in the shape of a Bra and have Swarovski crystals imbedded in them. They are priced at 10TL each and all monies go to Tulips.
If you require any further information or would like to offer any help, please call either Carole on 0533 873 1693 or Sue on 0548 870 2281
