I'm going to cycle very far, with my legs, alongside some other people, as a shameless vector for raising money to support Khora in Greece.

About

As you know, the refugee crisis is still very real, and there are a still a lot of very desperate people.

I know that my going on this cycle ride doesn't directly help anyone, but it got you to this page, and to these words, and hopefully it will encourage you to donate some money to help the cause... it will also make me very happy if you help out.

100% of donated money goes 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.
