Dear all, 

This Monday a group of cyclists are cycling all the way from London to Athens and I will be joining them for the 1st leg - London to Brussels. 

This cycle is organised to raise money for Khora, a grassroots community centre for refugees in Athens. I volunteered 5 months at Khora and witnessed the community it builds and the difference it makes in people’s lives. 

The expenses for going to this trip are covered by people that participate and all the money raised is going to Khora. If you're looking for a project to put your money in, Khora definitely deserves your donations. 



v pondeli vyjizdim na cestu na kole z Londyna do Bruselu. 

Tato cesta slouzi k vybrani financnich prostredku pro Khoru, kumunitni centrum pro uprchliky v Atenach.

Dobrovolnicila jsem s Khorou 5 mesicu a na vlastni oci jsem videla komunitu, kterou Khora tvori a rozdil, ktery dela v zivotech lidi. Naklady na tuto cestu jsou hrazeny kazdym ucastnikem a vsechny vybrane penize jdou Khore. Pokud jste hledali projekt, ktery ma pozitivni vliv na zivot lidi, Khora je rozhodne misto, ktere si Vase penize zaslouzi.

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.
