After 3 very successful years as the Chairman of EFRAR – Esentepe Fun Run and Ramble, Art Watson has decided to step down.
He said “Raising over 192,000TL this year made me realise that if we want to continue to provide significant funds for Tulips – Help those with Cancer Association – we need to think about what we can do differently next year to increase the profile of EFRAR and the sponsorship. So I want to concentrate on the financial aspects, including having a greater involvement in the Turkish Cypriot business community. It is difficult to do this together with my responsibilities as Chairman. I am also involved in supporting the Special Needs School in Ziyamet in the Karpaz and wish to spend more time supporting them and organising the Kumyali walk later in the year to raise funds for these special children. I am very proud of what EFRAR has achieved and am honoured to have worked with such a dynamic committee.”
Art’s wife, Mary Watson, has agreed to take over the Chairmanship. She said ‘”Art will be a difficult act to follow but I am delighted to accept the challenge and ensure that we continue to tackle next year with the same determination and enthusiasm as in previous years and raise as much money as we can for such a worthy cause.”
