Hi! We are Cal and Jimmy. We are joining the fantastic Thighs of Steel team cycling their way from London to Athens to raise money for a much needed community centre for refugees in Athens. We will be joining them for the Croatian leg pedalling our way along the 700km stretch of the Adriatic Coast over 1 week. That is a long way and your generous donations will motivate us to power up those Croatian mountains.

We don’t want to saddle you with debt so anything you can give will be much appreciated. As the UK government turns it back on promises made to take 3000 unaccompanied refugee children, reducing that number to a mere 350, its more important than ever we do something positive. 

Thank you! x

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.
