Lauren's Mental Bike Ride
So... I've gone and got myself involved in a 425 mile bike ride from Milan to Trieste over a 6 day period. I'm nervous as hell and lacking in the confidence I should definitely have by now to get me through it. But I am still doing it! Why? Partly because I am an idiot, but mainly because I have seen the AMAZING work that Khora community centre does in Athens for kind, grateful uprooted families who are stuck there, trying to keep it together. The refugee community to which Khora provide language classes, legal aid, a dentist, a kids space (where I worked and became a human climbing frame) and the dignity of sit down meals. You all know about the refugee crisis but I'm sure many of you are unaware of the incredible independent charity called 'Khora'. The money raised from this bike ride will keep it open for another year, and I can't imagine how awful it would be if it had to close. I'll be ridiculously grateful for even the smallest of donations. Cheers xxx

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.
