This year from may to july i'll be joining the mighty Thighs of steel team! A cycle ride from London to Athens! The idea...the raise money for Khora, a grassroots co-operative in athens! I have been lucky enough to have spent the last 5 months in athens working in the Khora community centre, a space for those who have been displaced from various situations across the world. This project is full of passion, love and support and it has been amazing to be apart of over these last months... and its projects like thighs of steel that allows Khora to provide so much.  My main aim over the two months is to create a short film about thighs of steel and its work with Khora, along with some crazy cycling adventures through Europe! It would be amazing for any support you can offer to help keep this project running!

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.
