To cycle 700km from Milan to Trieste in 6 days (June 3rd-10th)! This is over 120km of cycling each day, including some roads in the Italian Alps.

£500 each / £1500 total

ALL of the money raised will be going to the wonderful KHORA (; a grass-roots foundation based in Athens. They are based in a 7 storey building - each level hosts a different service, ranging from: a kitchen & cafe serving over 500 restaurant quality meals a day, dentistry and legal services, as well as a workshop & free shop. The education level currently boasts 128 classes each week including English, German, Greek, Portuguese and French language lessons. 

I (Phil) was lucky enough to visit KHORA back in January this year and was completely awestruck by its energy and diversity. Many of the volunteers, are refugees themselves, ensuring that the project has direct ownership by the community it aims to serve. A mighty impressive project and one we feel well worth supporting!

Thank you in advance for all your generous donations!

PS. We can promise exclusive photos of Rosh in Lycra!

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.
