I and many other hearty souls are participating in a relay ride from London to Athens to raise money for Help Refugees, a charity who fund grassroots, refugee-focused organisations across Europe. The aim is that the group raises £40,000 to support this amazing charity. I shall be doing my bit by cycling from Dubrovnik to Corfu in 6 days (the hard bit), and all I ask of you is a little assistance in raising my £500 portion of the fundraising (the easy bit).

Help Refugees is not simply another aid organisation. They work where governmental and other non-governmental bodies can (or will) not, filling the gaps and providing emergency aid and vital services to those affected by the global refugee crisis.

 (charity number:1099682).

For more information on the excellent work that these good folk do, take a look at their website:

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.
