About this campaign


I'm Lydia, and I’ve signed up for a pretty long cycle ride.

I will be joining the brilliant Thighs of Steel team on week eight of their London to Athens relay to raise money and awareness for Help Refugees. Over the past few years I have found myself involved in projects related to the refugee crisis and have met people who have have joined the ride in previous years. This has really inspired me to take on this challenge and raise money that supports grassroots refugee projects, such as Khora in Athens:

We will be cycling the 670km from Dubrovnik to Corfu, along the hilly coast of Montenegro and Albania, finding places along the way to pitch our tents for the night. I’m a confident London cyclist, but the furthest I’ve cycled long distance is London to Whitstable - about 96km. So six days in the saddle on unknown terrain will be a whole new challenge! But I’m very excited to get training, with only three months to go.

I have paid for the trip and all the expenses, so every penny raised will go towards this worthy cause. Please help me smash my target of £500.

Thank you!
