The Knight Templar is walking in
ESENTEPE FUN, RUN AND RAMBLE 2014
Raising money for TULIPS (Help Those With Cancer Association)
By Chris Elliott
Following the article I wrote recently about the Knights Templar of Cyprus I am pleased to be able to tell you about a very special event that I became aware of some weeks ago but were unable to tell you about it until now and here is the news from the organisors.
The Knights’ Templar used Cyprus as a base for their financial and commercial activities and travelled extensively across the island to support their trade routes coastal and inland. These routes included daily pilgrimages between the castles at St Hilarion and Kantara.
With this in mind, on Saturday, 1 March, the Knight Templar, accompanied by some of the Esentepe Fun, Run and Ramble 2014 committee members, will arrive at St. Hilarion castle at 11.00am before moving down to the Kyrenia Castle/Harbour around mid-day. The entourage will move onto the main streets of Girne about 1.00pm and will stop at George’s bar in Girne at 3.00pm. The walk will then continue out towards The Cratos Hotel all the time encouraging people to donate to Tulips.
The Knight Templar commented: “Knights Templar these days are heavily involved in charity work and as well as supporting Tulips (Help Those With Cancer Association) here in North Cyprus, I am also committed to helping Cancer Research and the Macmillan Cancer Support in UK.”
Visiting businesses along this historic pre-determined route, it is hoped that they and the public will be give generously to Tulips (Help Those With Cancer Association).
For a donation, photo opportunities with the Knight Templar, along the route, will be encouraged.
