    Weʼve raised £900 to The Smile of a Child (Albania to Corfu swim 🇬🇷)

    Corfu, Greece
    Funded on Sunday, 30th December 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    A bunch of us are swimming the Albania to Corfu channel (3km) on Saturday September 8th to raise money in aid of the Greek charity The Smile of a Child. Details of charity are below and we would really appreciate any support. Any donations help these children as they rely on generous donations rather than governement funding.

    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.
