Just to let you all know, yakamoz has donated back her prize to the charity. Very many thanks  :D :D :D

I need to wait a couple more days before I can wrap this but will do so over the weekend (if we still have such a thing  ;)  ;)  ;) )

As promised just to wrap up this year's sweepstake.

The total raised this year is £ 489.00 !. More on that in a separate post.

But for now and just to let you all know the money will be donated to the charity in memory of Adele Webley, Bernie Teyze's daughter who tragically passed away last month at the tender age of 40.  :( :( :(

As I said the total this year is a fabulous £ 489.00. You won’t need a degree in mathematics to work out how much over the target amount that is (50 + % more).

And the remarkable thing was the number of members who raised the money.

7 members took 1 horse; 7 members took 2 horse; 3 members took 3 horses; 1 member took 4 horses; and 1 member took 6 horses.  That’s a total of just 19 members.

Taking part is of course totally voluntary but I am always surprised by the generosity of CBF members who do take part but have to confess to being a little disappointed that more people don’t take part.

So a huge, huge thank you to the following who stepped up to the plate to help under privileged kids.

swindsor, steveb1, hornedfrog, Olga, jan deli, ianK, spo6666, phil5257, marina, yakamoz, Bernie Teyze, cenk, greybeardbob, sadler, stortman, debbie20, Dennis Vint, bewva, AOK.

Well, this wonderful group have done it once again! What an amazing result! Your generosity is very much appreciated by all at the 3C's.  Times are difficult for everyone at the moment, with this awful virus.
Our shop has been closed of course and as John mentioned, we were given 2 days to leave our storage depot. This was especially difficult at this time as many of us were locked down here and couldn't help with the move.
We are still looking for a new depot in Çalış.
Thank you all for your support, and best wishes to you all.
