Beautiful sunshine and a great turn out made the morning a huge success and the total amount raised, with the sale of cakes and a raffle, was 1910 TL.

How will the money be used?

The money will go towards providing a wood store for Nif School. Currently, the wood they use in their wood burners during the winter is stored outside in the playground and gets damp and wet. This makes it extremely difficult and unhealthy to burn.

The Üzümlü Group will also be providing gifts for the school children to on 23rd April to celebrate National Sovereignty and Children’s Day in Turkey.

They have also recently supported the family of a child suffering from cancer by contributing to the cost of transport and accommodation during treatment.

We couldn’t do it without the help of local residents

The Üzümlü Group are quick to sing the praise of the local residents and local businesses, without whose help and support they wouldn’t be able to achieve what they do.
