Boo's Thighs of Steel
Cycling my socks off from Ljubljana to Timișoara in support of Khora; a grassroots association providing humanitarian care to refugees in Athens
Raising money for
Thighs of Steel
Donations accepted until 01-05-2019
In August I'll be cycling from Ljubljana to Timișoara, alongside the inspirational Thighs of Steel team, raising money for Khora community centre in Athens.
As well as cycling through some lush landscapes, we'll be stopping off in towns at the forefront of the refugee crisis, learning about their local situations. It's going to be a massive challenge, one I'm ready to stare right in the face and smash out of the Slovenian park!
Pennies = pedal power!
Help me to beat my target and support an incredible cause. All donations go directly to the charity, for which you can find more information in the following links:
Love, hugs and friendly bugs,
London to Athens 2018
A group of not-so-serious cyclists have set themselves the serious challenge of cycling between London and Athens. The ride is a relay-style challenge, with each participant taking on a week or two of the overall trip.
We are fundraising for Khora; a grassroots, proactive association running a community centre in Athens. Their centre provides basic and human needs for people without freedom of movement. This includes free nutritious food, clothing, education, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax.
Equally important to what they offer, is how they offer it. Khora is run by volunteers from all over the world. Its team includes members of the local Greek community, the refugee community and other international volunteers too. It prioritises dignity and respect in every service it provides.
The £60,000 we are aiming to raise will pay for the rent for their community centre for an entire year. The running costs of a project are typically the hardest to find funding for, so it of particular importance to be able to provide this for Khora, to secure a stable future for the project. All fund-raised money goes to Khora, and none on the ride.
