About

I'm joining forces with Thighs of Steel to ride 220 miles from London to Paris on week 1 of a 7 week relay from London to Athens. We're a group of intrepid cyclists fundraising for Khora, a small co-operative providing vital support to refugees in Athens.

The Khora community centre provides not only basic needs such as free nutritious food, warm clothing and dental care, but also social needs such as education, child care, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax.

Since the Macedonian border was closed in March 2016, over 57,000 refugees have arrived in Greece and have been effectively trapped in a country that is already facing its own deep economic difficulties. Living conditions are desperate!

Our aim is to secure a stable future for the project by collectively raising £40,000 to pay the rent for the centre for a year. 100% of every penny you donate goes to Khora, we are individually covering all costs associated with the ride.

It's a very long way to the Eiffel Tower so please give whatever you can to help keep me pedalling towards my £500 target and enable Khora to continue providing this vital lifeline to refugees. Big thanks x

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.
