Hi I'm Roya and I'm going on a pretty long cycle ride with to raise money for Help Refugees and an Organisation called Khora in Athens. As someone who has never had gears on their bike or done a bike ride for longer than an afternoon, 6 days in the saddle will be a new challenge but i'm excited to start training!

We will be cycling along the coast of Montenegro and Albania, camping along the way. I also thought it would be a great way to turn 30 as my birthday will be at the finish line!

I have paid upfront for all my expenses so every penny raised will go towards the cause! I'd like to make my target of £500 and any more i can!

Thank you!

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.
