In memory of valued Trustee Nicos Papadroushotis, 15th September, Reading

Alkionides Committee members and friends braved the weather and walked 10Km along the river Thames in Reading on the 15th September 2013. Alkionides UK Charity is made of dedicated volunteers who work hard throughout the year, with no administration costs, so that all the money you donate reaches the ‘Alkionides Nest’. This is free accommodation provided to low-income Cypriot patients undergoing treatments that cannot be done in Cyprus. The families stay at the ‘nest’ sometimes for a few days, sometimes for several months, like Mr Achilleas who is waiting for a transplant for seven months now. Our members and friends support these families and help with transport, translation and above all with moral support, by visiting on a weekly basis and keeping in touch.
The sponsored walk has so far raised over £2500. Maintaining the three rooms of the ‘nest’ in Paddington costs £3,000 a month. You can still send your donations by sending a cheque to Alkionides UK to the address below, directly to our bank or securely online via
