I am cycling one segment of a larger cycle ride from London to Athens to raise money for Khora refugee charity. I will be rolling through 815km of eastern European countryside making my way through four countries! (Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary and Romania).

This ride has been going on for a few years and I have donated to others in the past - but this year, its my turn to take to the saddle and your turn to take to the donate button!

We pay all of our own expenses etc. so all the money goes straight to the charity.

Please help with anything you can.

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.
