Please accept our apologies for the delay in releasing the results, we were waiting for the final monies to come in.

What a fabulous day the 22nd September 2019 turned out to be and we have so many people to thank for their time.

Our first thanks go to Richard and Nadine Muller, owners of Veni Vici Restaurant. This is the second time that they have organised a pasta marathon and both have been in aid of Tulips. We also would like to thank the staff at Veni Vici who all worked tirelessly throughout the day.

The Veni Vici Pasta Tossers did a fantastic job on the day and more or less took over the cooking for the day so thank you not only for the cooking but for the sponsorship you all raised: Steve Male, Steve Gittins, Clive Seager, Chris Martin, Les Moody and Brian McCreath!

To all the volunteers who all gave up their Sunday, we thank each and every one of you, to Tricia Gough who ran the ‘Cover the £1’, to Mickey B for the use of his music equipment, the entertainers Gavin Simons, Laura O, Katie B and Wonky Donkey who all performed for free and to our very own Bayrak Radio. We would like to give them huge thank you as they allowed a live 3 hour road show with Can Gazi at the helm in the studio and the lovely Denise Phillips (Radio Angel) both of whom kept the guests entertained and listeners up to date.

Our thanks also go to all our sponsors.

And finally, a massive thank you to Mr Mustafa Haci Ali, the day would have been a nightmare had we not been able to use his land as a car park.

The total number of pasta dishes sold was 1,143 x  30TL = 34,290.25TL!

Here are some photos of the presentation (held on the 26.09.19) to say thank you to the pasta marathon tossers and a few helpers on the day. There are other photos on our Facebook page click here
