Fitness and fundraising

A massive thank you to one of our ongoing supporters, Claire, who continues to put in so much effort in organizing events to raise as much funds as possible for us at Tanyel’s Smile. In June, CLRfitness and crew helped raise £285 each for two good causes.

Our special thanks to everyone who took time out from their weekend to join in this awesome two hour fitness event, also to the wonderful management and team at Make a Difference studio in Sidcup for allowing this to take place.

We are so very grateful for your continued support 🙏

Helping children and their families

We at Tanyel’s smile have had the opportunity to present our children, and their families, suffering with cancer in Northern Cyprus, vouchers they could spend at Erülku supermarket for Eid.

We have also had the chance to have lunch with our children and families at a place where Tanyel loved spending her summer holidays .

Thank you to Caner Aspava and the staff at Aspava restaurant. We had a great day and released some pink balloons in our beautiful Tanyel’s memory. Also, a big thank you to Kemal Saraçoğlu charity for keeping us informed of the children receiving treatment at the oncology ward in Lefkoşa, and also joining us for these special days.

And as always a massive thank you to our supporters who continue to support so we are able to make this happen.

A beautiful tribute to Tanyel

A little background as to how this song was created.

A dear friend of Tanyel’s mother, for over 35 years, was living in Cyprus at the time of Tanyel’s funeral. She went to visit my parents who live opposite Aspava restaurant, a place where Tanyel loved spending her summer holidays every year. 

Katriye let off some balloons at the restaurant in memory of my beautiful Tanyel, and at the time, Huseyin, the songwriter of the band Kibris Yolcuları, was there writing a song. He got emotional as he knew Tan from a very young age, and this is where this all started from. With the help and support of Caner, owner of Aspava restaurant, who absolutely adored Tan, this video was created. 

There are so many special people to thank, who continue to keep Tanyel’s name alive and remember the little girl that never got a chance to live past the age of 20. Tanyel was bilingual so she loved listening to Turkish songs.Somewhere beyond this world she must be extremely proud to know how special she will always be.                                           

There are not enough words on how thankful we are to all the people involved in the making of this, and our supporters that keep Tanyel close to their heart. 

A massive thank you everyone  🙏 Aspava Restaurant Yedidalga

!5km in Istanbul

Tanyel’s mum and dad Ceyhun (Jay) completed the 15k run in Istanbul on 6 November 2022. It was Gulay’s first ever run and she was relived to finish in 1.59.38

“All credit to Ceyhun who continued to inspire me throughout, not leaving my side and when I thought my legs couldn’t take no more he pulled me past the finish line”.

Tanyel who although is no longer here on earth with us continues to inspire so many with the energy she left behind.

A massive thank you to all who donated and helped us raise £1,361.

You are all the reason we can keep our help for other children going through what Tan endured through her short life.

After COVID, a proper Christmas

Tanyel’s smile had the chance to visit the oncology children’s ward in Northern Cyprus .

We met with newly diagnosed children and their families including our children that we have had the chance to know over the years . We were proud to be able to give them support and special vouchers for the festive season.

A big thank you to Kemal Saraçoğlu charity for organising this and making sure we are aware of all their treatments. We are honoured to be able to work together to bring smiles to these children who are affected by childhood cancer .

We wish all our special children and family’s all the best and a very Happy New Year.

A massive thank you to Kibris World Wide for the amazing charity ball last night, which helped to raise  £3,200. The proceeds will be split between two charities one which is Tanyel’s Smile.

Also, a massive thank you to Tcca Haringey Bayram Cubuk and Erim Metto, Ibrahim Üç Firtina ,Djcelil Huseyin Erdinc and Tanyel Hassan for making this such a special night .
