It is with great pleasure that we can share with you details of our very special Christmas Market and Fayre to be hosted this year by our good friends at Hotel PIA BELLA in Girne.
Our heartfelt hanks to Mehmet and everyone of the Pia Bella for having us back and we are sure we will be sharing lots of laughs together!
Our Christmas Market & Fayre is being held on SUNDAY 1st December 2019 and will start at 1.30 pm .There will be an entrance donation of 20 TL per person payable and we will invite you to have a cup of tea/coffee and cake on us as a thank you for your continued support.
Our charity tables will be jam packed with Christmas goodies and quality bargains and there will be lots of other tables there for you to browse and enjoy and hopefully treat yourselves from.
If anyone could help us by baking something for our charity cake stall please be in touch. We cannot ever have enough mince pies
Anyone wanting their own table to sell their own wares please get in touch with Lynda on 0533 8866261 asap as numbers are limited.A donation of 40 TL is payable per table and we will invite you to have a cup of tea/coffee and cake on us as a thank you for your continued support.
We will be running our Island famous Raffle and our 50/50 for you to have a flutter on and there will be some very special 'guests' helping us make this '' An afternoon Full of Christmas Cheer''. There will be lots of Ho! Ho! Ho's we promise!
We hope to have carols being sung but more on this later and our beautiful Christmas Tree will be in prime position.
The Kaya Palazzo last year was spectacular but then the weather turned against us so this year we will be in the main dining room of The Pia Bella and surrounding area's leading out into the gardens. Once again thank You Mehmet and everyone at The Pia Bella.
Please make a note of the day, date and time and come and share the afternoon with us. Ring Wendy on 0533 8686078 for more information or any queries.


From all of us of the NorthCyprusCancerCharityTrust! It is all systems GO! We can't wait!

Had lots of good stalls there last year. And it's rude not to have a cake and coffee. In fact bringing home more than one cake lol
As you've said weather certainly wasn't helpful for stalls outside. - wasn't there a twister at sea.
Looking forward to attending this year and supporting the course.

Can I just comment to everyone intending to attend this wonderful event, please try and get there early, or park as far away as perhaps Lemar, as the back car park at The Pia Bella is now a building site and there is no access at the back to cars or pedestrians.
Just thought I would let you know and hope it doesn't put anybody off.

ONLY 7 more sleeps.

Breaking news. After serious negotiations with the North Pole we can announce that we will be having a very special visitor next Sunday to join Mother Christmas and her magical Elf. We are sure there will be lots of Ho! Ho! Ho's being heard.

We are overwhelmed with the generosity of some very caring people who have generously donated so many beautiful items for us to sell from our charity tables next Sunday.
Our heartfelt thanks to you all.
May we send a very special thank you to Mr. Mashar Bey of CHINA BAZAAR who has gifted over 500 TL's worth of stunning prizes which will be be included in our Island famous Raffle. Of course you have to 'have a ticket' which will be on sale at just 10 TL for 5 chances of winning
.
Thank you from all of us of the NorthCyprusCancerCharityTrust. See you soon.

May we give a gentle reminder on parking for our very special Christmas Market & Fayre on Sunday 1st December hosted by Hotel Pia Bella.
There is a vast amount of ground to be used as parking adjacent to the sport fields opposite the Pia Bella. Access to this is directly opposite Shooters.If you come from the Pia Bella to the roundabout turn left and then left again. Drive in a little way and park. There is a gated entrance that you can walk to by the sports field which will bring you out directly opposite the Pia Bella at the front where we will be!
Also the Girne State Hospital have given us permission to use their hospital car park.
Both of thes are FREE parking.
Also can we remind you that if anyone needs assistance please ring Wendy on 0533 8686078 and Mehmet from the Pia Bella will try and help.
It is all systems go!
Thank you and we hope to see you all on Sunday. NorthCyprusCancerCharityTrust. 'A' Team Santa Hats at the ready

This is Thursday and we have ONLY 3 more sleeps until our very special Christmas Market & Fayre.
There are whispers! There is unrest! WHAT ARE WE ON ABOUT?
May we confirm that we are ONLY asking for a 40 TL donation to our charity for anyone wanting their own table to sell their own wares at our event. One person, one table just a 40TL donation to help us help the local hospitals help us all.
We gift each table holder with a refreshment voucher so they can enjoy a 'cuppa' and cake on us as a thank you for their continued support.
Why do we have to confirm this? There is some confusion that we are asking 150 TL per person per table! WE WISH!
If any table holder would like to gift more to our charity , Yes! please! We would not say NO!
Our Christmas Tree is looking beautiful. We have confirmation the ''main man'' will be with us which will make Mother Christmas very happy.
Not one but two magical elves! Double trouble or double magic?
The icing on our Christmas cake is being made by the lovely people who are members of the Lefkosia Protestant church choir who are coming to sing for us accompanied by their own pianist.
Beautiful Music. Caring people, Giving & sharing! Hey! This is Christmas. Our 'A' Team are we ready?
Hope to see you all soon and thank you! NorthCyprusCancerCharityTrust,

Can we just add that there is ''No more room at the Inn''.
We had limited space as we needed to be inside and all the spaces are now filled.
You will all be able to browse and enjoy just over 40 different tables plus our very own charity tables which will be full of Christmas ''goodies' and beautiful items.
Bring it ON! We cannot wait! Thank you all again. From all of us of the NorthcyprusCancerCharityTrust.

A gentle reminder if we may?
ONLY one more sleep! It's tomorrow. 1.30 pm in the main dining room area at the front of the hotel. Entrance will be through the large glass doors by the side of the dining room.
We will be there! We hope you are too!
Bye for now! Merry Christmas from all of us of the NorthCyprusCancerCharityTrust.
