I'm a mum of four lovely kids and we love riding bikes of all types whenever we can! We also really care about helping people in our local community and in the global community whenever we can. Refugees are people in great need of kindness and understanding, as well as practical necessities. Please support me in my efforts to support them.

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.
