Last year, with a little persuasion, I signed up to cycle from Dubrovnik to Corfu with Thighs of Steel to raise money for Khora, a co-op in Athens that focusses on providing valuable services to refugees. It was perhaps one of the craziest, hardest and most gruelling weeks of my life and so...obviously I am going to do it again! The whole cycle rides from London to Athens with different people cycling each leg for a week. This year I will be cycling from Brussels to Stuttgart with a different group of lovely people and a new and unique challenge. Being truthful, it was an incredible experience and as a group, we raised over £100,000 to help Khora keep doing the work it needs to be doing. Hopefully this year we will do the same, and if we can put money into the hands of the people who are most qualified and able to give vulnerable people the help that they need then it will be a huge success and everyone who donates, cycles, helps out and supports will be part of a super duper achievement! So if you can, help a girl out with a few squiddles, to encourage her to get on a bike and cycle very very far up some horrible, horrible hills. Much love. Emma xxx

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.
