The Dove Newsletter Editorial Team – Summer Newsletter 2018

Dear Members and Friends

I am lying on the couch listening to BBC Radio 2 under a big fan.  On air is Alan Carr and Melanie Sykes, it’s just so different listening to UK radio, the variety of programmes, no adverts on that station for instance.  Where would you get a Alan Carr and Mel Sykes over here.  It says a lot for the BBC and says a lot for internet that we can listen to it thousands of miles away.

Talking of the Internet, if you have trouble opening your copy of The Dove Newsletter in pdf please get in touch and we’ll send it to you in jpeg.

Have a lovely summer and great start to autumn whatever you do or wherever you go.

Don’t forget there are regular events going on in our pubs, check out these on Events Page.

Last year we donated €90,000 to PASYKAF, this goes towards the Nurses salaries in Paphos and of course towards supporting the Free Coach Service to the Bank of Cyprus Oncolocgy Centre in Nicosia – and calling at Limassol and Nicosia General Hospitals and is available to all Cancer Patients, in addition we are able to supply necessary Equipment and other items as required by the Nurses and Patients.

Congratulate yourselves, we have just given a cheque to PASYKAF for €25,000.  The photo shows the cheque presentation to PASYKAF Psycho-Social Services Co-ordinator Antonis Tryphonos by our then Chairman Colin Lewginton and then Secretary Bill Major.  Well done everyone!


Please help us and our Members to continue raising funds by supporting the Events of the SG – these can be found in the quarterly Newsletter, Facebook or our Website – all donations to towards helping Cancer Patients and their Families in the Paphos Region.

On a day predicted with Storms, Rain and High Winds we managed to erect the Gazebos at the Harbour and continue with the stalls.  In fact the weather was quite good for us most of the day and after all efforts €821.66 was raised.

Many thanks to helpers who loaded the van, helped on the stalls and contributors to the Bakery stall



A BIG THANK YOU to those who supported the Bazaar on Sunday  5 November whether cooking;   helping on the day;   or the evening before;  helping to load up and unload the Van; coming and spending money or just supplying items – a total of €4,741.41 (€1,859.25 Raffle) was raised,  which as far as I am concerned was a very successful effort in inclement conditions.
