I am a keen cyclist and am excited to have this opportunity to raise money for refugees in Greece. 
I feel strongly that refugees all over the world deserve support and help to get their lives up to a decent standard of living. 
This is the first time I have raised money through a charity event and feel privileged to be doing so for such a good cause.

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.
