Sweet Seventeen, Cypriot, ambitious, determined and committed
|Remember Can Somer - the lad from South London whose ambition is to change the world of cinema in North Cyprus? For one so young (a mere seventeen years old) he has the vision of one far more mature, but maybe this is because he has the backing of his parents and family.
He has two brothers who work with his father in the family business but for Can it is greasepaint that runs through his veins rather than blood, and the arts call him. Although still at school with dreams of good A level results and then university, he manages to fit in film making to gain the experience which he knows he will need to fulfill his dreams.
Two special chilly dips on Christmas Day - and not a dish in sight
Do you fancy a nice chilly dip on Christmas Day? This year you have a chance of two, and on the same day on the same beach, so you could have a double dip and do double good - maybe not for yourself but for two different cancer charities..
Both the North Cyprus Cancer Charity Trust and Tulips will have the brave, the daring, the bold, the fearless and to some maybe those with a little touch of madness in their souls, who will plunge into the ocean blue to help raise money to enable both the buying of equipment and the provision of services to those facing the challenge of cancer.
