About

We are fundraising for Help Refugees, a charity who fund grassroots, refugee-focused organisations across Europe. The specific organisation we have chosen is Khora, a small, proactive co-operative, made up of volunteers from all over the world, including the local Greek community, the refugee community and other international volunteers. As a collective they saw that there was a need for a community centre in Athens so they set about creating one. Their centre now provides not only basic needs such as free nutritious food, warm 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.

The money we are aiming to raise by cycling to Athens will pay for the centre's rent for a year, enabling all this great stuff to happen!
