Tulips- Help Those With Cancer Association…….
Martin and Jan Ashworth decided that they wanted to raise money for Tulips/HTWCA (as Tulips had been a great support to them when Jan was going through her cancer treatment). They wanted to do this whilst taking part in the SPoT raft race on Sunday 24th July. So with the full permission of the organisers of SPoT they embarked on a sponsorship idea, which was asking people to guess how long it would take the team consisting of Martin and his co-sailors Mark Rumbelow, Leo Collier-Betts and Jarrad Dunn, to sail the circuit. They charged 5TL a guess with the view that the nearest 2 guesses would win a meal for two people.
Martin and his team came 3rd with an official time of 14.21.53 minutes.
Sue and John Green guessed the closest time and won a meal for 2 at the Tervetuloa Restaurant, Alsancak with Val Gregory and Derek Rogers coming a close 2nd and winning a fish and chip supper at Lokmans, Alsancak.
We would like to thank both restaurants for their valuable support and of course to Martin, Jan and the team for their efforts on the day and raising a fabulous sum of 410TL!
