Albania Overboard: Albania to Corfu Swim 2018

The Smile of a Child is a registered Greek Charity with ten 'houses' across the country. In the Charity's 25 year history it has helped over 1.3m children recover from the effects of violence, health problems and extreme poverty, as well as spearheading countless missing children's campaigns.

The Corfu Centre currently houses around 20 children who, for one shocking reason or another, have been removed from the care of their family by court order. The Smile of a Child receives no financial assistance from the Government and the Corfu Centre relies solely on funds raised locally. Supporting and educating children through to higher education is an expensive business and many of the children require intensive therapy to overcome the traumas they have experienced. The life changing impact Smile of a Child has to their lives is unequivocal.

Revered across Greece for the excellent work that it does, The Smile of a Child was also supported by the late parents of our founders, Patricia Cookson and Spiro Lemis.

In 2016, the second time we organised a swim, we raised approx. EUR 20,000 which were given to the Community. This year we hope to increase that figure significantly.

The Anglo Hellenic League www.anglohellenicleague.org is acting as a tax efficient route for UK donors, and will transfer the money raised, and the Gift Aid received, to the Charity.
CAF and Bank cheques are also welcome and should be issued to:
The Anglo-Hellenic League and posted to:
The Treasurer,
The Anglo-Hellenic League,
151 Preston Road, Wembley, Middlesex. HA9 8NQ.

Thank you for your support,
Nick Cookson and Nick Lemis
