The 2016 Albania-Corfu Swim

In 1995 the Greek Charity "The Smile of the Child" was established. Since then it has helped a huge number of disadvantaged, abused and orphan children, and 20 Community Homes have been established throughout Greece.
One of the Homes is situated in the North of Corfu where 22 children are currently housed and educated. The Community also distributes clothes, food and medicines to needy families throughout the island as well as continuing to support the children who go on to further education. Given our strong connections to Corfu, it is specifically to this Community Home that funds raised by our 2016 swim from Albania to Agios Stephanos will be donated. In 2014, the first time we organised a swim, we raised EUR4,000 which we gave to Jordanis who runs the Community. This year we hope to increase that figure significantly, as well as raise the profile of the event with the aim of it becoming a growing annual fixture amongst Corfu's charitable events.

CAF and Bank cheques are also welcome and should be posted to The Treasurer, The Anglo Hellenic League, The Hellenic Centre, 16-18 Paddington Street, London, W1U 5AS
