LONDON: Awards for the “Saints” FC

The NW London based Saints FC celebrated a season, and a life, last night.  The Club hosted its annual Awards evening with a community dinner in memory of its co-founder and Treasurer, Pani Argyrou, who died recently in the young age of 29. 

At the end of each season, St Panteleimon hold an awards evening to honour their players and thank the supporters and volunteers, who make this club what it is. It is also a chance to raise funds for next season’s campaign. 

Around 130 people enjoyed an evening of hospitality, with the delicious food generously donated by Mr Savvas Andreou, the club’s president.  

The awards were presented by invited dignitaries and honoured guests, such as Mr Panicos Herodotou, community great benefactor, Mr Pantelis Demosthenous, journalists Mikkos Chrysostomou, of Eleftheria, and Michael Yiacoumi, of the Parikiaki newspaper, and our new community and church board president, Dr Panayiotis Procopiou.
