Supported via Help Refugees, Khora is a community centre based in Athens, which provides refugees with crucial support. Until better, long-term political decisions are made by the EU to allow refugees to move on with their lives in a safe and happy way, it is essential that we support grassroots initiatives such as Khora.

Having had the opportunity to visit Khora’s community centre in Athens last year, I was blown away by the dedication and care given to it’s visitors. It’s an incredible project and the money raised from the cycle contributes towards the vital day to day costs of running the centre and providing long term support to refugees arriving into Europe. 

I am once again, putting my love for cycling and adventure to good use to raise money for Khora and the brilliant work they do.

The hills (mountains) are really big and I’m feeling very unfit - please support me by donating to the cause! Last year the ride raised over 100,000 Euros – we’d really like to beat that this year. Donations of any size are gratefully received. 

All donations you make will go directly to the charity

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.
