2014 Charity Events Planner
Inspired by the Royal British Legion,
By Chris Elliott
Margaret Sheard and I have been firm supporters of charities and organisations that have arranged events with the intention of helping others and during the period we were writing in the North Cyprus English language newspapers and we made every effort to publicise their forthcoming events and where possible, write about their achievements.
As many of our local readers will be aware we moved away from newspapers and started our cyprusscene.com web blog around 18 months ago as we realised our articles and reviews would be read all round the world and would be archived for future reading as well which is the way to give productive publicity.
It was with great delight that we received an email as below from the Royal British Legion, Kyrenia Branch with news of their efforts to prepare, with other charities, a co-ordinated events calendar that can be seen and printed by clicking here.
We send all concerned with this project, our best wishes for a successful 2014 and ask you also to continue to send your information to Margaret on firstname.lastname@example.org so we can continue to publish your information in our weekly events calendar.
A Happy New Year to you all.
Just before Christmas our Chairman invited you to a meeting of all the North Cyprus ex-pat charities, with a view to putting our separate programmes together in order that our events do not clash. Although not many attended the meeting several of you expressed an interest in being kept informed.
Attached to this email you will find the 2014 Diary as at 1 January, obviously this will be filled out further as the year develops and I would be grateful if you could advise me of any additional dates to – email@example.com
Wishing you a successful fund-raising year.
