The Knight Templar is walking in


of Tulips


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.

NORTH Cyprus’s very own Knight Templar has pledged his support to raise money for the Esentepe Fun, Run and Ramble 2014 in aiKnight Templard of Tulips (Help Those With Cancer Association).

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.

  1. Statement from Esentepe Fun, Run and Ramble 2014 committee

    Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Knight Templar will NOT now begin his walk from St. Hilarion.

    The Knight Templar, accompanied by committee members will begin his journey from Kyrenia Harbour, starting as 11.15am on Saturday, 1 March. The rest of the route is unaffected.
