Kyrenia Amateur Dramatic Society (Kads) chairman Don Attwood handed over a 4,000TL donation on Friday March 2, each to KAR head Margaret Ray and SOS’s Çise Özverel, who brought along a handmade ceramic gift made by grateful young members.
Mr Attwood also thanked Mehmet Eminsoy and staff at his Pia Bella hotel for hosting the “travelling players’” shows last year.
Pia Bella waiter Naseer Khan stepped up to accept a thank-you gift and certificate and said: “We are always happy to look after such lovely people!”
Kads members Beverley Westbrook and Caroline Attwood joined the group for the presentation in the hotel garden, along with SOS social worker Çağan Türkoğlu, PR officer Raşit Kutlu and KAR shop supervisor Gwen Cassell.
Mr Attwood said: “It gave us all the greatest pleasure to act in our Christmas Cracker show, Phil Lucock’s comedy and Beverley’s Shakespeare and other sketches, and also to hand over the proceeds to our charities.”
The am-dram windfall was the second last week for SOS, after the presentation of 10,150TL from Lord’s Palace hotel staff in Girne.
The money, which will help cover education, health care, food, clothing and social activity costs for youngsters at the Lefkoşa village, was handed to SOS national director Refika İnce on Tuesday February 27 during a visit by hotel staff, led by marketing and communications director Melisa Demir.
Ms İnce thanked the visitors for their generous contribution to children’s welfare.
