Allo! I'm joining some mighty adventurer, steely thighed lushers to take part in a cycling relay from London to Athens for Khora who are brill and you can read more about below.

I will be cycling 700km, including 9200 metres of climbing, through 4 countries over 6 days. I'm not going to pretend I'm not looking forward to it- it looks ruddy gorgeous and I'll probably have the time of my life but would be great if you could sling some money for the really important cause. And to get my arse into gear on the training.

All of the money fundraised goes directly to Khora, to keep doing what they do best, and none of it on the cycle. 

Thank you. From Khora, me, my tired legs and sore bottom xx

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.
