From all of us at FACT, huge thanks to Polly & Nigel, their team and customers from the Club House, Palm Mar, who raised a FANTASTIC 1,700 euros on behalf of FACT!
.FACT have had a fantastic time with The Scottish Tenerife Golfers over two days in November! Crystals Palace, Las Americas on Wednesay, with Alex Love and Phill Littlejohn and with George McCcormack and his amazing staff in The Star Bar, San Eugenio on Thursday. Over these 2 days these guys and their friends and families raised an incredible amount of money for FACT. On the final count the total raised was a fantastic
No words can express our gratitude, but we are truly grateful to everybody who gave so so generously. FACT have had an unforgettable couple of days with you all...We have danced, we have had a tipple or 2..or 3 or 4! We have laughed (and I have even had "a wee greet" as we talk about in Scotland)....and we did it all with the most amazing people and the most fabulous entertainers... May and Robert Miller... what can we say about May....in Tina Turner·s words...you are "Simply the Best"...
From each and everyone of us at FACT to each and everone of you thank you is not enough...but because of your generosity we will thank you all by reaching out to more people here in Tenerife whom we can help.

Eddie and Hollie and all their customers made us feel so welcome and we were absolutely overwhelmed to accept the proceeds from Eddie's head shave ....an amazing €1,133.70 at the final count. To say thank you is just not enough, but we do, from.all of us at FACT thank you so very much. Your donation means so much to us and ensures we can continue helping people and their families living on our lovely island with cancer in their lives 💞

In Memory of Barbara Tyler:
Barabara worked for many years in our local restaurant, The Olive Garden... owned by one of the nicest lady's I have the priviledge to know.. Sally and her partner Rob .
FACT were aware that Barbara was unwell with cancer, sadly we were just starting to help when Barbara died.
Sally invited me up to the restaurant yesterday and both Jim and I went. We were given this lovely thank you card with €215 inside... Barabara's friends had decided instead of buying flowers for her funeral they wanted to donate the money to FACT. Just to say thank you to these lovely people is not enough... but from all of us at FACT we do say thank you so much ....Anne & Joe, Craig Alan & Lisa (from the Bluebell), Mairead, Kev & Kath, Caroline & Sally (from the Olive Garden).. without the kindness of people like yourselves FACT would not be able to do what we do....
ps. my forever memory of the lovely Barbara will always be her and her partner Martin singing karaoke in our local pub....a good few years ago now..but memories are so nice to have...

Gill and I met up with Dianne and Ben. (Dianne is a member of FACT). They had contacted Gill through a mutual friend saying they had raised some money which they wanted to donate to FACT. Gill and I spent a very pleasant hour or so in "Charleys" with Dianne and Ben and were completely overwhelmed when Dianne handed us an envelope containing €1,300. These lovely people had raised this huge amount of money fundraising themselves and FACT do feel honoured to be given the opportunity of helping more local people because of their kindness.
THANK YOU SO MUCH DIANNE AND BEN

Huge thanks to Club Olympus, Garden City, for their amazing donation of 1 week's holiday accommodation which was auctioned at FACT Fundraiser 2016. Thanks so much also to our Sue for presenting our "Certificate of Thanks" to Ivan from Club Olympus!
A huge thank you to Bri and Jane and everyone that came along to Picasso's Pool Bar on Island Village, San Eugenio for the FACT special fundraiser. With a little bit of horse racing, raffles and the like a very handy 620 euros went to help cancer sufferers in southern Tenerife.
A very special thank you to Trevor Fish for the money raised by for his chest and back dipilation!!! How slow can you pull the wax strip off? Very, very slowly it seems . ... Ouch!
Then I met another lovely lady.. Joanne. Joanne is a leukemia survivor and until she came to live here a couple of years ago raised money and donated it to Addenbrooks hospital, where she had her treatment. She is very interested in FACT and.in fact (no pun intended) is now a member of our group. Joanne is going back to the UK on Friday for a couple of months, but when she comes back she's happy to become actively involved with us. Had a lovely chat with her and her friend...again in Charleys! For the second time in the space of a week was completely overwhelmed when Joanne handed me an envelope containing €500 ..once again FACT do feel honoured to be given the opportunity of helping more local people because of Joanne's kindness.
THANK YOU SO MUCH JOANNE.
