Joe is cycling a long way for good cause
I'll be cycling from Timisaora in Romania to Sofia in Bulgaria to raise money for Khora; a community centre in Athens which provides services to refugees including education, language skills, mental health support, legal advice much much more. You can read more about their incredible work here:
I'll be cycling an average of 126km a day with a LOT of climbing for 6 days in the height of summer. The mere thought of this turns my thighs to something more akin to jelly than steel! Any help you can provide, large or small, will be so very much appreciated and your commitment will no doubt help me maintain motivation when it all gets a bit much.
NB all the fundraising goes to the charity, we are covering our own costs.
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.
