Charity Coffee Morning
« on: Monday, 01 May, 2017 @ 14:36:19 »
For locals or holiday makers alike, there will be a Coffee Morning held on Monday 8th May at Filoxenia Pool Bar, Katelios, to support John Ellett, who is looking to raise £10,000, to help the animals of Kefalonia by providing food, medical care, shelter and rehabilitation into hopefully, a forever home. Please come along and perhaps bring a cake or some pastries to sell, in order to help this endeavour. Tea and coffee pots will be at the ready at 11am.
If you are unable to come, please consider sending a small donation - check out details below..

John Ellett is an amazing man who rescued a dog from ARK and decided that he wanted to do something that would help all the other animals. Last year, John overcame a fear of heights and completed a skydive to raise money for the ARK and did marvellously. On May 14th 2017, John is to attempt a double event of a Skydive and Wing Walk, to help raise even more much needed funds for Ark and KATs, and to make people aware of the important role the charities play on the Island. This does not only entailed fundraising, finding sponsors and begging for money but also starving himself to ensure that he will be the right weight to undertake this hair-raising feat.

Anyone can support John by sponsoring him, donating to his Crowd funding (see below) page or by buying or selling his raffle tickets. Or maybe hold an event yourself to raise money - selling cakes at work or, hold a coffee morning of your own. This man is going to extraordinary lengths to raise awareness and financial aid for the shelter and the animals of Kefalonia, so lets support him in any way we can. Even a euro/pound each will make a huge difference to his total - he's nearly halfway there!

Hello Bell, might be wrong but I believe Filoxenia are in the road that's opposite Aliti's, going from there on the right hand side past Anemona apartments/hotel

That's the best way from Skala - a good  400 hundred yards from Aliti is my guess.  Alternatively if coming from Argostoli there's a rather sharp right turning (unmarked, of course) as you get to the bottom of the hill just past Pacifae opposite the memorial/square and before the bend right into Katelios and the road on to Ano Katelios.  In which case Filoxenia is on the left.  Saves going round in almost a complete circle.

John Kennet sounds like a great guy - just looking at his JustGiving page.

PS just donated.
