With over twelve stalls, specially set up at the Hellenic Centre’s Board Room on the first floor, the Lykion ton Hellinidon, this unique cultural charity, once again surprised us following the successful Christmas Lunch earlier this month at the Royal Thames Yacht Club!
From the traditional home-made traditional Greek and Greek Cypriot Christmas sweets, such as melomakarona and kourambiedes, Christmas cakes , cookies, and marmalades to jewellery, gifts, gift boxes/hampers with sweets, drinks and other Greek products, calendars and diaries with exceptional photographs, note-books, and hand-made embroidery table-clothes and pillow covers, greetings cards, as well as unique hand-made traditional greek woven creations with authentic weaving loom by Yfantourgimata, you name it, were demonstrated for sale in support of this charitable society.
All these creations by the ladies/members and friends of the Lykion ton Ellidon, the Greek Ladies Lycee are part of the many events of the vibrant Greek community in London, based at the Hellenic Centre in Marylebone.
Many of the members and supporters are part of the international Greek Shipping Community and many organsations, associations and charities, particularly in the United Kingdom include in their Annual Dinners’ evenst the team of the Lykion ton Hellinidon dancers to perform!
