We would like to offer our sincere thanks to Penny Hughes who came up with this idea and provided the contents of the hamper for Tulips/HTWCA in memory of her husband, Howard Hughes.  Also to everyone who dug deep into their pockets during this season of goodwill especially as there are so many other fundraising events taking place during December.

We would also like to personally thank Lyn and John Dyer who donated 50TL to help replace some of the items that were lost during a flood from Thursday night’s torrential storms and also to Bestseller for the wrapping paper to renew and decorate the hamper!Replacement hamper

A tremendous sum of 2,250tl was raised which has not only paid for a nurse’s wages for one month in the Lefkosa State Hospital Oncology Unit but also helped fund one chemotherapy session for someone who otherwise could not afford it.

Many thanks for all your support this year and we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2016

Sue and Carole
