St. Andrew’s Church, Kyrenia….

St. Andrew’s Church, Kyrenia was packed for a wonderful concert for Music Week 2019 on Friday 10th May. Over 8000TL was raised which will be shared between our chosen charities: Tulips (Help Those with Cancer Association) and the Lefkoşia Women’s Refuge.

Those who attended were entertained by a mixture of both sacred and secular musical pieces performed by the St. Andrew’s Choir and guests under the Director of Music Earl Moffitt and guest Facilitator Dr Joe McKee.

On Sunday 30th June following the 11:30am Holy Communion service, a cheque for 4020TL was made to Raziye Kocaïsmaïl, President of Tulips. As a most generous gesture our bankers, TürkBank, also gave a donation of 500TL to Tulips.

In a deeply moving acceptance speech Raziye told the assembled congregation of her own and her family’s battles with cancer, and that the donation would pay for the expensive medication required by eight cancer patients here in the TRNC. The donation from TürkBank would supplement that by providing for yet another patient.

Raziye then presented St. Andrew’s with a beautiful picture and a bunch of tulips in thanks for the support given by the church over many years.
