The Abnormals great F-factor show at the Balti House in Esentepe

Introduction by Chris Elliott…

Margaret Sheard and I work very hard publishing news and reviews we are receiving on our CyprusScene website and online weekly enewspaper and rarely have time to be able to meet with friends and enjoy their company and events.

In the past we have had the opportunity to be with the guys and gals of the Abnormals and are delighted to be able to share their news of their latest creation, the F-factor show which sadly we were not able to enjoy with them.

The Abnormals  F-factor show at The Balti House in Esentepe went down an absolute treat on Saturday 25th May. 

The show included acts – Bucks Fizz, Johnny Cash, Rod Stewart,  Firefarter, Fozra, The 2 Freddies, Al Wilson, The Famous Fat Birds, The Monks, The Proclaimers, The Cheeky Girls, Madonna and Britney and The Union Jack!

Lots of audience participation and judging acts along with Simon Cowell by satellite!!  Around 80 plus guests and packed!!

The Abnormals: Susie Ford (who writes the shows), Martin Ford, Annette McCloskey, Martin Foster, Kate Bell, John Malloy, Dave Lavender and, nearly Abnormal, Andy Reay!!    They all kept the crowd in fits of laughter and everyone sang along too!!

A big thank you to The Balti House for their food and service and raffle donation. Thank you to Tim’s Cafe for their raffle donation.  Thank you to Paul and Marilyn Lee selling raffle tickets and to Patricia Malloy collecting monies!!  Thank you to everyone who put in for the charity too as without you we couldn’t do what we do. People are very generous for such a much needed cause. 

The Abnormals have been raising monies for almost 4 years doing their shows, appearing in places for photographs and have also competed in the fun runs.  Their energy is amazing and they work very hard and it seems everybody loves us!!  I am so proud and honoured to work with this crazy fun loving bunch of guys!!  Always collecting for Tulips (Help Those with Cancer Association). 

The Tulips pot handed in a week ago from The Abnormals totalled 2.800TL plus 27 euros!! and from the F-factor show for Tulips they raised 1,956.50TL!!

Susie Ford also handed over another donation at the end of the night to Ziyamet Special Needs School  for which she does a football card every Thursday on her quiz night. This was the response:

Hi Susie,
Firstly, We really enjoyed the show last night which was without doubt the best one yet, well done everyone.

Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved in raising 785 lira for the children at the Ziyamet Special Needs School. The donation is very much appreciated and will go towards the continuous funding of a full time physiotherapist. This is so important to the children and their physical and psychological development.

Looking forward to meeting the gang again soon and congratulations on your fund raising achievements.
