2013 gala dinner

300 guests, including Dame Tessa Jowell and designer Allegra Hicks, attended the annual Magic Bus Gala Dinner at The Dorchester in London’s Mayfair on Wednesday 9th October.




The guests were treated to an Indian themed menu and entertained by the fabulous DJ Anna Greenwood. Lord Jeffrey Archer conducted an active live auction which featured lots including a one-on-one training session with England cricketer Kevin Pietersen. The event raised a fantastic amount to support Magic Bus’ work with children and young people living in India. Have a look at the photos of the evening!


During the evening Magic Bus youth volunteer Jolly Dass took part in a question and answer session with compere Nikki Bedi to inform guests about her life growing up in a slum in Delhi and how she enjoys working to improve her community by promoting education, gender equality and health and hygiene to children in the Magic Bus programme. Guests were also shown this film on the work of Magic Bus.


Thank you to all our guests, sponsors and raffle and auction donors who helped make the evening possible.
