Raising money for
Thighs of Steel
All I needed was an email from a friend saying that he was raising money for a refugee charity by doing a crazy bike ride for me to involve myself in this madcap adventure!
A great cause and a great challenge. Will be flying off to Sofia in Bulgaria on 26th August and spending a few crazy (hopefully) days on the road before hitting the Greek port city of Thessaloniki. As someone who has a minor love affair with his bike, has travelled to Greece many times before and has been moved by pals who have worked with refugees I had to sign up.
Please support me by helping me to reach my target!
London to Athens 2018
A group of not-so-serious cyclists have set themselves the serious challenge of cycling between London and Athens. The ride is a relay-style challenge, with each participant taking on a week or two of the overall trip.
We are fundraising for Khora; a grassroots, proactive association running a community centre in Athens. Their centre provides basic and human needs for people without freedom of movement. This includes free nutritious food, clothing, education, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax.
Equally important to what they offer, is how they offer it. Khora is run by volunteers from all over the world. Its team includes members of the local Greek community, the refugee community and other international volunteers too. It prioritises dignity and respect in every service it provides.
The £60,000 we are aiming to raise will pay for the rent for their community centre for an entire year. The running costs of a project are typically the hardest to find funding for, so it of particular importance to be able to provide this for Khora, to secure a stable future for the project. All fund-raised money goes to Khora, and none on the ride.
