We've done it! Our aspiration to purchase a permanent 'nest' in London has just come true. We have raised £900,000 and purchased a property near Brent Cross and local hospitals. The photo shows the house which is undergoing some small renovations and furnishing but we aim to be in there by March 2024!
The Charity relies on volunteers who selflessly dedicate their time and effort, with no reward, in order to help families facing severe financial and medical hardship. The Charity works in close co-operation with welfare services and acts without delay.

'Alkionides’ are the Halcyon days, the calm bright days in the midst of winter that, according to Greek myth, the Gods gave to the kingfishers to enable them to hatch their eggs on the rocks. Similarly, we aim to brighten the days of these families. Alkionides UK supports low-income families from Cyprus undergoing medical treatment in UK hospitals. It provides free accommodation in north London, the Alkionides 'Nest'. We also have a dynamic team in Birmingham and the Midlands who similarly support patients sent to Queen Elizabeth Hospital. We raise funds with the help of generous sponsors and by organising cultural events and social functions. The charity prides itself in that all money raised is used to help the patients and their families as administrative costs are kept to an absolute minimum.
