Personal note from George and Areti

“As we approach our one-year milestone, our CCF journey has truly been a rollercoaster of learnings, achievements and constant evolvement. Over the last 12 months, together with our committee, we have worked tirelessly to find ways to raise awareness and prevent further tragedies from online dangers, and we promise to continue our mission for as long as we can.

Both Areti and I have been overwhelmed by the support from all walks of life whether its through corporate sponsorships, requests to present at schools, events or just messages of thanks from parents and children.

One of our most loyal supporters is Christopher’s Rugby team who has been with us from the very beginning and has ensured that our beloved son’s memory is kept alive. The Cheshunt Rugby Club, in particular Niki and Ryan McGreevy, have sought different ways of driving the message throughout 2023, whether it’s an annual award or fundraising events. But for 2024 they have surprised us with an even more exciting way to spread the word. We are so grateful to have our logo represented on their rugby kit. This is an amazing honour and privilege, and we can’t wait to experience the many advantages this will have on driving further awareness of our charity.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the team for their continuous support, and we look forward to attending some of the games and cheering them on.

There are many opportunities to work with us, so please do contact us at CCF with any ideas, presentation requests, or even if it’s just for a chat. We would love to hear from you.

All the best and THANK YOU”

George and Areti

THE CHRISTOFOROS CHARITY FOUNDATION (CCF) was set up in memory of our beautiful son, Christoforos, who sadly passed in March of 2022.

The force behind setting up this foundation is driven by our infinite determination, be it directly or indirectly, to try to help and save as many children as we possibly can; not only from the negative impact of social media misuse, but also from harmful online content, cyber bullying; and from dangerous exposure to the dark web where predators lurk, disguised behind a digital screen, trying to earn our children’s trust.

CCF commemorates first year with successful Dinner & Dance

On the 18 November many of our friends, family and supporters joined us at the Cypriot Community Centre in Wood Green to commemorate the first anniversary of CCF and the success it has delivered to raise awareness of cyber bullying and online predators.......

Our local community newspaper, Parikiaki covered the night so please click on picture to read more about it.
