Readers Mail
From Carole King and Sue Tilt…

On a very wet 24th January 2018 (about as wet as the 31 December when the swim took place!) the Tulips Chilly Dippers met at the Fly Inn, Lapta, to find out how much money they had raised for Tulips.

The Final amount collected was a staggering 17,180.50TL … absolutely amazing.

Raziye Kocaismail President of Tulips/Help Those With Cancer Association was there in person to thank all the swimmers and present them with a silk tulip and a handmade coaster with silk flowers on.

Certificates were presented to those who were able to attend:

(as the photo from left to right) Linda Tabi, Tig Mackenzie, Steve Foster, Jackie Pennington, Alper Sahin, Steve Owen and The Fly Inn for their continued support for this event

And the other swimmers to receive our thanks and a certificate are :

Roger Miles, Lisa Gutenkauf, Mike Grasty, Omer Seyfi Durhan, David Foulke, Steve Riley, Phil Chappell, Sue Tong, Yusuf Isik and Jenny Brown – supplier of the mulled wine

We would also like to thank Akpinar Patisserie & Atakara Supermarket for their bread donations!

Just to put this event into perspective the amounts raised in previous years were:

Dec 2014 = 5,453.50TL

Dec 2015 = 8,347.00TL

Dec 2016 = 9,558.50TL

Dec 2017 = 17,180.50TL – what an amazing achievement and our appreciation must also extend to all the swimmers sponsors who so generously donated their money.

Thank you
Carole and Sue
