Last summer I went on a really long bike ride for fun. This summer I want to do the same but raise some money for a brilliant charity at the same time. 

I'm joining a group ( cycling in stages from London to Athens. I'm doing the Lyon to Milan stage riding over the alps. It's going to be hilly. We are raising money for a refugee community centre in Athens (
Last year TOS raised £48,000, enough to pay for the rent and electricity of their 7 storey building for the entire year! It's a great place responding practically to a situation where refugees are left in limbo for months upon months, without the right to work, or any state benefit system to financially support them.

All the money you donate goes directly to the charity (I am paying thighs of steel separately for the support van, food etc).

Please do sponsor me anything you can afford. 
Love Rich

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.
