Donate £20 or more, I'll send you a LIMITED EDITION print. You can put it on the wall, and be reminded of the wonderful support Khora provides to refugees.

I'm also asking people to switch energy companies in order to raise money. Bulb is a renewable energy company. Each time I refer a friend, that person gets £50 credit and so do I. If you use the link below and switch to bulb then I'll donate my £50 credit to Khora (you can donate your £50 too if you like!).

If you donate £20 or more, email me your address to send the print to. If you want to chat about Bulb, also drop me a line:

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.
