Hestia Housing and Support

We support vulnerable Londoners to make positive changes in their lives.

Charity Registration No. 294555


I am cycling across Vietnam to raise money for children who are homeless due to domestic abuse in The Hestia Cycle Challenge.

30,000 children across the UK are made homeless each year due to domestic abuse.

Each year, Hestia provides a safe home for more than 600 children who would otherwise face homelessness or would be forced to remain in an abusive and dangerous situation.

In 2017/18 we still need to raise another £33,000 for us to continue in our work. 


The Hestia Cycle Challenge 

Some days we will be cycling up to 200km across Vietnam, this will include mountainous terrain and uphill peddling to wet ground of Mekong Delta. 

The route will be difficult and much further than my daily 20 minute cycle across London to work. Lots of training to be done! 

I will be joined by 10 - 12 other cyclists - all of whom hope to raise a minimum of £2,000 each - to be shared between Hestia and an orphanage in Vietnam. Each cyclist will personally pay for the cost of the trip.

With your help I aim to raise £5,000 from this cycle to continue supporting children living in our refuges. Your donation will help us to ensure we have dedicated Children and Families Workers providing these young people the life they deserve, free from fear and abuse.
