We are keen to continue and, where possible, expand our charitable efforts, both to maintain our own cultural programme and to support other relevant causes. If you wish to donate to the League, please contact our Treasurer on firstname.lastname@example.org.
John Carras, League Treasurer (L), and John Kittmer, League Chair (R), take possession of funds raised for the Greek disability charity ELEPAP, at the Runciman Award Ceremony 2018.
