NCCCT Bingo – July 2014
By Margaret Sheard….
It is so hot in North Cyprus in July but by the time we arrived at the Pine Bay Hotel for the monthly NCCCT Bingo Night, the evening was very pleasant and the sports bar area being used for the event was comfortably cool.
Arriving in time to eat before the bingo started, my sister and I ordered our choice of food and it was very enjoyable.
It seems to be the usual supporters of the bingo evenings going along to support Carole and Mike but on this particular evening we were joined by Steinar Medbøe from Norway and his Brazilian wife Edenia Lima Medbøe who were having a week’s holiday in North Cyprus, and were leaving the following day to return to their home in Oslo.
As is normal I didn’t win any lines or houses, although a large bar of chocolate in the free raffle came my way, my sister was lucky and had 3 wins and a raffle prize and Steinar and Edenia had a win on the bingo and also won a bottle of wine in the raffle so that was nice for them.
There were 16 players and a total of 280TL was raised for the NCCCT charity with donations from a regular supporter. The jackpot of 1,200TL was still not won and will be rolled over to the next bingo night which will be on Monday 18th August.
Maybe a few more people will come along and support this worthy charity, The North Cyprus Cancer Charity Trust, and possibly be the lucky winner of the jackpot.
