Sponsored Walk

Last Sunday, after the morning Service at the Church, we had the annual Sponsored Walk.

The event is organised once a year by 4 good ladies of our Community, namely Mary Nicholaou, Mary Papapavlou, Martha Constantinou and Gina Panayi.

The ladies prepare all the paper work for the event; they also provide water for all walkers, as well as cakes etc. for all people who get involved.

This year was the 6th year that this event was being organised. And it was once again greatly successful.

Leader of the Sponsored Walk this year was His Grace Bishop Gregorios of Mesaoria, who had just celebrated the Episcopal Divine Liturgy at our Church.

Fr. Anastasios, Dr. Serafim Kiriakidis, George Kostopoulos, Panagiotis Argyrou, as well as many of the teachers and pupils of our St. Panteleimon Hellenic College had taken part in the 3 miles Walk. The total number of walkers was: 70.

All the walkers together collected £5800 towards the fundraising for our new Church. Fr. Anastasios alone had collected £2670.

This event has proved quite popular and generated valuable funds for our newly built Church.
