In June I will be cycling from Corfu to Athens to raise money for grassroots charity Khora and the incredible work they are doing for the refugee community in Athens. Their centre provides critical support; from free nutritious food, warm clothing and dental care to education, childcare, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax. Here is a link to their website:

This ride is going to be my toughest yet (no contest!) - and although I can't wait, challenges include BIG mountains, Greek summer heat and 100km days. It will be incredible and exciting and beautiful but tough! I am hoping to raise £500 for the charity, and if every cyclist on the ride does the same we can raise the essential running costs of Khora for another year.

Every penny donated goes to the charity, the cost of the ride is paid for by the cyclists.

Thanks for all your support! Helen Xx

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.
