I'm halfway through my two-week peak condition drive & raring to get back on my as-yet-un-borrowed bicycle.

Last year nearly broke me. But until better political decisions are made and long term stability settles, we do what we can as individuals.

In 2016 we raised £48,000, paying rent and electricity on the building & enabling Khora to provide for refugees in Athens.

Khora provide refugees in Athens the basic needs of nutritious food, warm clothing & dental care. And they provide broader social needs - of education, childcare, and access to asylum information. And the simplest of all - a safe place to build relationships, smile, and relax.

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.
