I'm nervous, exhilarated and proud by the challenge of joining Thighs Of Steel on cycling from Dubrovnik to Corfu this June in aid of 'Help Refugees' and the Khora Cooperative in Athens. Particularly in current times when we see fellow humans facing life-changing decisions and situations on a daily basis, I feel very motivated to challenge myself to fundraise for this cause.

So help me keep pedalling, fund the vaseline to rub on my sore bottom and support a very worthy grassroot organisation like Khora. We'll be wild camping, looking after and cooking for ourselves to make sure every penny goes directly to Khora.

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.
