The Christmas Fair in Dalyan was a great success. It was a lovely, sunny day. People from all over the area were there and Father Christmas visited to the delight of the local children. The Foundation stall was very busy and we sold some gifts, gave out lots of leaflets and got lots of signatures on the petition. We saw lots of old friends and met some new ones. In particular, Jan Crosbie and Christine White from Koycegiz who were running a stall selling beautiful Christmas candles and table decorations. When we went to chat to them we discovered that they were raising money for the foundation!
After visiting us on the beach in the summer and learning about the awful injuries turtles receive from boat propellers they and their friend Julie Cottrell in England started fundraising. Julie started the fund off with £100 and they have now raised a fantastic total of 1000TL.
Kaptan June and all at the foundation send a heartfelt thanks to them.
