The Apollon Football Company (Public) Ltd in collaboration with the big sponsor of our team, the company Stoiximan, proceeded to a social responsibility move by offering a check to the standard day center “Apostolos Loukas”.
A delegation of the Apollon Football Company (Public) Ltd consisting of the marketing manager Mr. Koula Stavrinidou and the head of the Commercial Department Mr. George Georgiadis accompanied the Country Manager of the sponsor company Stoiximan to the center and handed over the 5,000 Parents of Adults with Mental Disability “Apostolos Loukas” Mr. Andreas Panagiotou.
On behalf of our football team were present the Cypriot international football players Charalambos Kyriakou and Ioannis Pittas and Isra Col.
The excitement, joy and smiles of the people served in the center when they met the footballers and the delegation of the two companies, best reward we could feel.
After the modest ceremony, Mr. Panagiotou, after guiding the representatives of the two companies, stated:
“On behalf of the Board of Directors, the Management and the 54 served people of our Association, we would like to express our warm thanks to the betting company Stoiximan and Apollon Limassol, for their touching and full of humanity initiative to visit us at the Model Center. of our Association and to offer the amount of 5000 euros, as support for the efforts of erecting a privately owned structure of a Supported Living House and a Short Hospitality Program of our Association in the area of Nea Ekali in Limassol. Such actions are worthy of mention and praise. But the most important element of today's social visit was the joy, smiles and enthusiasm generously offered by the 3 football players of Apollo, Hambos, Pittas and Kol, who were photographed with the staff and the staff of the Association. Today you made us feel that football is more than a sport and Apollon much more than a team. Thank you! “.
For his part, Mr. Angelos Hontoulidis stressed once again that the company he represents will be next to the local community as it has always been.
Today, Stoiximan stood, as it has been doing for years, on the side of the local community of Cyprus and especially of Limassol, offering financial assistance to the Model Center “Apostolos Loukas”, of the Association of Parents of Adults with Mental Disabilities, through our sponsorship collaboration with Apollo Limassol. Besides, the return of the trust that the local community shows us is in the central values of Stoiximan in all the years that it is active in Cyprus.
However, to note that for us it is even more important than the material support, the smiles we saw on the faces of the children when they saw their heroes up close and we thank Apollo and his players who were present on this day “./p>
