Brit couple give their wedding anniversary presents to Tulips

22 October 2013

A British couple living in Alsancak have made a generous donation to the Tulips Cancer Charity.

Jenny and Bill Brown celebrated their 40th (Ruby) wedding anniversary party on 19th October at the O’live Bar in Alsancak. Approximately 30 family and close friends attended and they had all been asked to donate to Tulips in lieu of presents.

Jenny and Bill have lived in Alsancak for the past year having previously lived and worked in the South Africa for 20 years and Abu Dhabi for 6 years.

Jenny is herself a cancer survivor and was told that her cancer was caused by playing golf in the sun for the past 30 years.  Jenny is happy for everyone to know that every weekend she would play golf and before doing so she would apply a sun block to her lips however as the day wore on the sun block would wear off and was never reapplied, 2 or 3 days later she would get what she thought was a cold sore appear on her lips unfortunately this turned out to be a carcinoma.  As we are living in similar sunny conditions for most of the year Jenny is keen to make others aware how unexpectedly cancer can come about.

Tulips would like to express their sincere thanks to Jenny and Bill and their friends for raising an amazing 1,050TL
