Our World Record Breaking Thunderbirds team has made the news here and in Cyprus…
Tanyel’s Dad, Ceyhun, with five other valiant colleagues took part in the Virgin London marathon last week. It was an attempt to beat last year’s record in a six costume person “fancy dress” as “Thunderbirds 2”.
Great news! They achieved a new Guinness World Record and raised over £12,000 for Tanyel’s Smile and CLIC Sargent, two charities very close to our hearts.
CLIC Sargent provided invaluable support to us throughout Tanyel’s treatment, an we are forever grateful for this. We were inspired by their work, and Tanyel’s Smile is a charity set up by myself (her Mum) and her Dad, Ceyhun, to help others suffering as Tanyel did, and also to keep our beautiful girl’s memory alive.

One very special thanks to an outstanding, kindhearted and genuine person. The most loving, caring young lady we will ever know … Our daughter Tanyel …
Yesterday we had a great day meeting up with and sharing a special day with the children and their families undergoing treatment for childhood cancer. Our first stop was something to eat at Ezic restaurant and then the kids had the chance to pick a new pair of trainers.
A massive thank you to Ritvan and his staff at Ezic, to övgü at Kemal Saracoglu and to Ali basman and his sales team at Nike Basman. Also, special thanks and condolences go to Ada’s mum and dad, Guluzar and Murat, our bereaved parents.
