Hackney Cypriot Association and Sarah Warren invite you to this exciting fundraising event.

When European borders began to close at the end of 2015, Idomeni in Greece, became the largest makeshift refugee camp in Europe. 8,500 refugees, mainly from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, spent the winter there in extreme conditions.

Thanks to the generosity of Hackney people, the Hackney Cypriot Association were able to support refugees at the Idomeni camp all through last winter by sending warm clothing and other items required.

In May, the camp was disbanded by the authorities and occupants were relocated to specified sites around Thesalloniki, many in tents set up inside disused warehouses.

There are an estimated 57,000 refugees and migrants stranded in Greece, hoping to be settled in other countries, nearly half of these are children.

Advance tickets £10
All proceeds to Hackney Cypriot Association Refugee Appeal
