On Saturday, 27th August The Abnormals appeared at The Venue on Turtle Bay, Esentepe and a credible TL1,833 was raised for EFRAR 2017, for the Help Those with Cancer Association (Tulips). Some of this money included the chip sales at Windy Hill, generously donated by Alison Bones.
About 60 people attended the event and enjoyed a set meal and the show. The characters for the evening were Elvis and his Mrs, Hot Rod, The 2 Fat Birds, Johnny Elton, Animal, Arbe and Kardash, Andy Pandy, Looby Loo, Teddy and the Triplets and Missy Was.
The audience soon got in the spirit of the show and participated by singing and dancing as Spice Girls and wannabe Elvis.
The raffle prizes were wine, jewellery, aftershave, kitchen items and ornaments

The season’s first Abnormals’ show, in aid of the Help Those with Cancer Association (Tulips), raised 1,000TL for the charity.
Held at The Venue near Esentepe on Saturday 16th July, the evening was full of fun and comedy with the Abnormals providing their own particular brand of variety show. There was also a guest appearance by Kelsey Opel.
About 70 people attended the event where they enjoyed either a two-course or a three-course meal. All those who attended paid 10TL for their ticket and this, together with the raffle, raised the 1,000TL for the charity.
Mary Watson, Chairperson of the 2017 EFRAR committee said: “I am so delighted the Abnormals have chosen Tulips as their designated charity and I am confident that with their energy and enthusiasm, they will raise a significant amount of money for the charity over the coming months.”
The Abnormals next show, which will start at 8.30pm will be on Saturday, 30th July at the Gorgeous Bar, Küçük Erenköy. Booking is advised by ringing 0533 837 7020.
