I am honoured to be raising money for Khora and the excellent work they are doing for the refugee community in Athens, Greece. 

Collectively we are aim to raise £40,000 with the intention of paying for Khora's rent for another year. Khora is a grassroots organisation who provide for basic human needs with nutritious food, essential clothing and dental care, but also social needs such as education, child care, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax.  

I am a keen cyclist, however my ride from Corfu to Athens will provide a significant physical challenge with long cycling days combined with mountainous rides and the Greek summer heat.

All of the money I raise through this page will go directly to Khora and not be used to fund the costs of the tour.

Donations of any size are gratefully received.

Thanks for your support!

Thighs of Steel 2017

We are fundraising for Help Refugees, who fund small grassroots refugee organisations. The specific group we are fundraising for is Khora, a co-operative made up of volunteers from all over the world, including the local Greek community, the refugee community and other international volunteers. Their community centre in Athens provides not only basic needs such as free nutritious food, warm clothing and access to dental care, but also social needs such as education, child care, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax.

A great project, Alex, which will make a real difference to individual lives. As the Jewish saying goes: 'If you save one life, you save the world entire.' You are welcome to borrow the Hewitt if you wish... AML xxx
