Fundraising Success – In the Pink
By Margaret Sheard
Carole King and Sue Tilt had a much busier time than normal and were totally exhausted by the end of the month but all of their efforts raised a staggering 33,060.84TL so they were over the moon at the result.
This is what Carole and Sue have reported.
“We are delighted to report that during October, Breast Cancer Awareness month we have raised a staggering 33,060,84TL…….. Sue and I are totally blown away by this amount as we were expecting to raise something in the region of 10,000TL, so we trebled what we hoped to raise. The breakdown of this figure is as follows: 25,620.59 – raised on our Wear it Pink Day (schools & business all dressed in pink!) 2,420.00 – raised on the sales of our Bra key rings 3,705.25 – raised on our Pink Stalls at Chateau Lambousa & Lemar, Catalkoy 265.00 – raised by donations for our Breast Cancer Health check 1,050.00 – raised by Jenny & Bill Brown, donations on their 40th anniversary We would like to thank all the following participants in our Wear it Pink Day (in no particular order):

What a brilliant effort by these 2 dedicated fundraisers. Maybe it is time now for Carole and Sue to take a well earned rest before re-starting on their relentless task of raising funds for Help Those with Cancer Association (Tulips).
