“We had a few problems with a very small minority of stallholders at the November and December sales which resulted in us having to cancel the January sale” said 3C’s Chair Peter Clark. “However following a meeting with the Director of Fethiye Zabita last month, we decided to go ahead with the February sale. I am pleased to say that that there were no problems at all, the weather was nice and it was a great atmosphere. I would personally like to thank Halime OK, Director of the Zabita for her support and for the help of her officers who attended the sale.”

The next Çalış Car Boot Sale will take place on Sunday March 22nd in the car park next to Bahar Hotel off Çalış seafront.

3C’s Spring Coffee Morning and Fashion Show

Thursday 26th March

Spring is just around the corner and to celebrate the start of the new season, the 3C’s are holding their annual Spring Coffee Morning, Bring and Buy Sale and Fashion Show on Thursday, March 26 – and best of all it’s a free day out!

The new venue for this popular event organized by the Çalış based children’s charity is Akkent Garden Hotel and Mandalin Bistro next to the court house in Çalış.

Running from 11.00 am until 3.00 pm, this long awaited seasonal event, which has become a signature event of the 3C’s, is a great place to meet friends and to enjoy a catch up after the long cold winter months. There will be lots of lovely gift items to buy, including some lovely jewelry and pamper items. There will be a delicious cake stall with lots of homemade cakes, biscuits, sausage rolls, pasties, preserves and other edible goodies, either to enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee or to take away. There will also be a tombola stall and a great raffle with a luxurious spa hamper, English goodies and an Easter duck with Cadburys chocolate! As with any bring and buy sale, the 3C’s are hoping that some of those who attend will kindly bake a cake or bring an unwanted gift or item to donate to the stalls and swell the items on sale – and the final amount raised for the children.

Then at 12.30 pm the charity will be staging their 3C’s Charity Shop Fashion Show featuring the new Spring/Summer season collection of quality clothes and accessories. As well as casual wear and smart day wear there will be lots of floaty eveningwear for the coming spring and summer season. Many of the garments are designer and popular High Street labels.

Compered by Çalış’s own fashion guru George Rimmer, committee members, volunteers and friends will be “strutting their stuff” on the catwalk in some great outfits – something not to be missed!  All of the garments modeled will then be on sale at the 3C’s charity shop.

So why not spoil yourself and enjoy a day of great entertainment, relaxation and “naughty but nice” goodies.
