About

Hello Friends, friends of friends , colleagues, patients and family far and wide.  

As a few of you already know I have been in training since January preparing for a charity cycle ride leaving London 22/07/18 to Brussels this is the first week of The “Thighs of Steel “ (TOS) team challenge 2018, which will take seven weeks, the final destination being Athens. This is to raise funds for “Khora”. I have been inspired by my daughter Annie who worked at Khora for five months as a volunteer over a very cold winter in Athens 2016. She also joined the TOS team for last year’s cycle from London to Athens. I have heard first hand from her the harrowing stories of people, just like you and I, that have been displaced from their homes and loved ones through no fault of their own.  I feel her passion for the wonderful people she has met and worked alongside helping to support and care, also of the generosity and humanitarian response on last year’s journey.

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.
