Thank you to Robert and Simon Brown for choosing to honour the life of their mother, Jacqui Smith by helping give life to others.
It was a privilege for Tulips/HTWCA to receive 651.30TL plus £50 in memory of Jacqui which was collected at her funeral on Friday 20th January 2017 in lieu of flowers from everyone who attended.
Through these donations a cancer patient will receive at least one chemotherapy treatment, thank you.

The Tulips Chilly Dippers have done it again!
Every year they aim to increase the money they raise and 31st December 2016 was no exception, as their goal was to get over the 10,000TL hurdle.
On the 21st January at The Fly Inn Lapta sponsorship money kept rolling in to the tune of 10,248TL and £35 sterling!
An absolutely incredible result for 10 people, who bravely got in the chilly Mediterranean sea and stayed there for a full 10 minutes.
A huge thank you has to go to Jackie Pennington for organising this annual event and to all the swimmers: Kay Thomas, Susan Hargreaves, Steve Owen, David Foulke, Steve Foster, Un Bitlis, Roger Miles, Auriana Stevens, Tig McKenzie and, not forgetting, Jenny Brown who organised and sold the mulled wine.
We would also like to thank the Fly Inn for providing the homemade soup and, of course, all the generous people who sponsored each of our swimmers.
A fabulous range of winter clothing will be on sale on the Tulips “Clothing Only” stall this Saturday.
All clothes are nearly new, so come down and stock up with some wonderful bargains….. we are not out of winter yet!!

Monday evenings at St Andrew’s church hall have become very special thanks to a wonderful group of singers who have tackled the ‘Barnabas’ musical numbers with great enthusiasm and some brilliant sound, all very exciting. There are first timers as well as experienced singers amongst the choir of thirty.
After two months+ of rehearsals all of the songs in the Roger Jones musical have been covered. There are good learning materials so practice can continue between sessions, many are singing their way through household chores or behind the wheel in the car, the numbers are really catchy. ‘I’m alive’ is a phrase from one of the lively songs and we certainly feel it on Monday evenings!
With the heat of the summer and many members returning to the cooler climes of the UK and elsewhere, there are no rehearsals until October. Rehearsals resume at the beginning of October and for anyone wishing they had become involved in this joyful experience it is not too late. If you can commit to all five Monday evenings in October from 6pm you would be very welcome to join us. Please email your details to me (email@example.com) and I will put you in touch with Lynette the choir mistress. Or, text Lynette on 0533 887 1417 after 14th September and she will make contact with you.
We are very grateful to Can Sigorta (Insurance) who have generously sponsored the advertising material, which will be distributed in late September.
Ticket information will be available closer to the performance date but make a note to attend a truly memorable evening on the 11th November 2016 in the rooftop theatre at the Colony Hotel.
