Fundraising for Greek Children – Music and Food Evening

Begins 5 May 2018 03:00 PM - Ends 5 May 2018 10:00 PM


Mindfulness​ ​MK and the Abbey Sutton Courtenay invite you to join us for an afternoon and evening of Greek food, music, mindfulness and community.

As many other European countries closed their borders in response to the refugee crisis, over 50,000 people became stranded in camps across Greece. Already struggling with their own economic meltdown, Greeks tried hard to care humanely for those people.

Over time, it became apparent how much the Greeks themselves were struggling with their own economic crisis. Mindfulness MK decided to continue raising money to help the Greeks of that area. All help was received very gratefully – often with tears – and has genuinely made a big difference.

And so the fundraising goes on!!! Everything raised will be distributed flexibly between the two orphanages in Drama and Kavala, and the church locally.

Many thanks in advance for your support in helping the Greeks, who have themselves opened their hearts to other people in need.

You have the option of arriving at 15:00 for a Mindfulness session until 18:00 or to come at 18:30 for a delicious freshly cooked Greek meal. The evening will continue with music from the Greek singing group “Nostos”, drinks and an opportunity for Helen​ Stephenson of Mindfulness MK​ ​ to talk about the work in Greece with families and children.

You then have ​the option to stay the night at the Abbey ​and enjoy an optional Sunday morning yoga session with Helen​, followed by breakfast.

Booking is essential. The Mindfulness and yoga sessions are free. Dinner is £15 per person. Wine will be available to purchase. B&B accommodation is available at the special rate of £35, or £45 for two sharing a twin room. Email dylan@theabbey.uk.com or telephone 01235 847401 for enquiries and bookings.

All proceeds will support Greek children and families in need. If you are unable to attend but would like to contribute, donations to the work in Greece can be made via a cheque payable to Helen Stephenson, or bank details can be provided for direct transfer.
