NCCCT Christmas Bazaar 2014
By Margaret Sheard….
We have had some awful weather in North Cyprus during the last week or so and Saturday 13th December started wet and miserable again but I pushed myself to go out to visit the NCCCT Christmas Bazaar which was held at the Pia Bella Hotel in Girne and found that so many other people had the same idea, I was told later some 400 people attended the bazaar, what a great turnout.
There were many stalls set up in the dining room with so many lovely items to choose from so I was able to do a little more Christmas shopping and a treat of some lovely little cakes which are sitting in the freezer ready for Christmas.
The room was buzzing with conversation and people looking around the stalls or sitting at the many tables which were set out for coffee and cake. The event was similar to the NCCCT coffee mornings but on a much grander scale and so well attended. It is nice to see so many familiar faces which makes us realise what a community spirit there is in North Cyprus.
There were many prizes for the raffle and at about 12.30 Angela and Pauline started the draw. There were so many winners and I was also lucky and have a nice meal for two to look forward to at the Carob Restaurant.
The following day I received news that 10,208TL had been raised for NCCCT, what a brilliant amount which will be used for even more equipment etc. for Girne State Hospital. NCCCT would like to pass on their thanks to all the supporters who attended the bazaar and their generosity in raising this fantastic amount.
