The Anglo-Hellenic League

Dedicated to promoting Anglo-Greek understanding and friendship, through charitable and cultural work. 

Our approach to fund-raising

The League raises funds actively in support of its two charitable objects (see 'About us').  The sources of our funding include: sponsorship, grants from awarding bodies, subscriptions paid voluntarily by our members, and donations raised through our cultural programme and special events. Funds raised enable us to carry out our programme of cultural activities and to fund action to promote knowledge of Greece and to combat poverty and hardship.


In recent years, the League has raised:

  • in 2018, the sum of £10000 for the relief of communities affected by the summer wildfires in East Attica;
  • in 2016, the sum of £8000 for the Greek conservation charity 'Elliniki Etairia: Society for the Environment and Cultural Heritage';
  • in 2012, through its Christmas Appeal, the sum of £8000 for the Greek charity 'Food Bank – Foundation Against Hunger';

As we are a charity registered in England and Wales, UK taxpayers can make tax-efficient donations to us through the Gift Aid scheme.


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  

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.
