Royal British Legion (RBL) Kyrenia branch chairman David Horsfall said 2019 had been a year of “lots of changes and challenges”.
“However, the branch has remained resilient and has held events throughout the year which were supported by members and non-members alike,” he said.
“Our aim for 2020 is to continue the good work of the Royal British Legion and continue to maintain and nurture its network of social support. This will be done in part by bringing our members together with a new calendar of events.
“We will strive to interact more with the local Turkish Cypriot community as many Cypriots have served with the British Armed Forces, including the Cyprus Regiment. We aim to promote friendship between ex-service personnel and their families.”
Coffee and “Chat or Beer” and “Natter” sessions will be held during the course of the year, according to the RBL Kyrenia branch.
Anglo Turkish Association (ATA) chairman Gülter Kuran said that they had “important projects” including the “continued objective of supporting one big and one small project”.
She said they had “continued to support the SOS Children’s Village” in 2019 and worked on a project to “transform St Lucas church in Lefkoşa” into a children’s education centre.
“In 2020, we will be carrying out activities to acquire a sports hall for children of the Girne Special Education Centre,” Ms Kuran said.
