Slimmers World, Catalkoy Grand Easter Raffle

By Margaret Sheard ….

We often follow the news of Slimmers World who meet at Sartaj Restaurant in Catalkoy and on Saturday 20th April, their weekly meeting included their Grand Easter Raffle. 

As well as donations by local businesses, the ladies had been collecting items for the raffle during the past weeks and they managed to put together a brilliant array of nice prizes, including many bottles of wine and spirits, hampers, a lead crystal vase, a meal for 2 at Sartaj and many others.

Any proceeds from their weekly meetings are donated to Kyrenia Animal Rescue (KAR) and Hope 4 Pets, two very worthy charities to help the street animals of North Cyprus.

Val Stuart-Traynor told us that they raised 1310TL for KAR from the raffle and 723TL for Hope  4 Pets from members’ weight losses and forfeits.

The group meets at Sartaj Restaurant in Catalkoy every Saturday at 10am. They now have 23 members.  If you would like to join the group, not only for weight loss but also to meet with others and make friends, please contact Val on 0542 855 1219.
