The Afternoon Tea Talk at the Black Olive Cafe, Alsancak, organised by the Friends of the TRNC Emergency Services (112) was held a week later in the month than usual and the topic was a bit different as the speaker was the founder of cyprusscene.com, Chris Elliott, talking about his journey into the media. So how do I write about it?

The Friends of the TRNC Emergency Services (112) held their monthly Afternoon Tea Talk at the Black Olive Cafe in Alsancak on Wednesday 11th April and there were the usual familiar faces present, together with some people I had not seen in quite a while. It is always nice to make contact again and be able to catch up.
What a year it was during 2017 with so many people helping Tulips – Help Those with Cancer Association either by organising events or making donations to help those many people who are suffering with cancer and need support from Tulips and hardly has the New Year started when we noticed a new event being planned as follows.

We have recently received information from Vicki Karaca of the Black Olive Cafe in Alsancak which included a proposal to do something for Alzheimers sufferers in North Cyprus. Currently, it seems there is no support for Alzheimers or Dementia and Vicki would dearly love to do something to help the families of people suffering from these illnesses.
In the regular news feeds from Vicky Karaca at the Black Olive Cafe we noted her advice which we are sharing with our readers in the event that they may have to call for a TRNC 112 Ambulance.
I hope you are all enjoying this lovely Cyprus weather and feeling like coming out of hibernation to raise more money for equipment for the Girne Hospital and the Emergency Services.
We had reason to call an ambulance for someone about a week ago, we were in Alsancak and the response time was less than ten minutes and it was so rewarding to see the efficiency of the crew and the fully equipped ambulance – very different to a few years ago!
You can all pat yourselves on the back, knowing that we have all helped in some way to help achieve this. On a serious note, some of the people that witnessed the lady who was taken ill did not know how to call an ambulance.
TO CALL AN AMBULANCE YOU JUST DIAL 112!! ( No other code is necessary – just 112) Please pass on this information to anyone who does not know this.
