Introduction bt Chris Elliott….

Our readers will be aware of Margaret Sheard’s fight against cancer which has been going on for many months and the decision I made to start a Go Fund Me appeal to help with the ever-increasing cost of Margaret’s treatment which you can read about on this link

Firstly may I thank again the many kind people who have made donations to Margaret’s health care fund and following a series of radiotherapy treatments. sadly she was re-admitted to the hospital again last week and we are now waiting to hear what the next treatment to help her will be.

I have been feeling kind of isolated in my efforts to raise funds for Margarets’s continued and ever-increasing treatments and then the lovely Diane Loftus contacted me asking how she could help and said she had a few ideas of how to raise funds locally and this is the news she shared on Facebook of a forthcoming event at Hati Restaurant in Esentepe and if other kind people would also like to make a contribution they can do so by contacting Diane or Hati Gürbüz through their event page or Facebook inbox.

“Hi all,
