Hospice fund raising. There is a mixture of old and new. There is a table outside the Church after Sunday Masses. You can help your hospice by distributing leaflets and posters to restaurants you frequent etc. They are available in both Greek and English.
We will shortly have “Michael Bears” available for sale at EUR5 each, they are available in 3 different colours and all proceeds will go towards the Hospice.
We are also delighted to announce that the 400 countdown income had reached EUR40,000 by the end of May, 10% towards our ultimate objective already, thank you to you all!
The next phase of construction has been agreed and will be the stand pipes, doors, railings and patio tiling at a cost of circa EUR64,000. To help with this as you may be aware we have launched the 10 euro per month standing order scheme through all major Cypriot banks and via the UK if appropriate.
Our next objective is to raise the EUR50.000 we need to purchase a lift and the Kitchen which will really mark major progress.
In addition to help with fixtures and fittings we launched the symbolic Key campaign at 10 euro’s per key, we already have sufficient funds to purchase a EUR2,000 bed!
The accounts of income and expenditure on the Hospice is available on the notice board in the Church, on this website and in the Hospice shops for your information.
