Magic Bus Gala 2009
Alisha Chinai, Indian pop sensation and Pop Idol judge brought over 300 guests to their feet in celebration of Magic Bus’ 10th anniversary in October 2009 at London’s Landmark Hotel. Joined by UK comedian Inder Manocha, Alisha flew over from India to help raise awareness of how Magic Bus is changing the lives of children living in extreme poverty. Helping us to achieve this aim, Princess Gayatri Devi, Anil Agarwal (Chairman, Vedanta), Lord Janvrin (Deputy Chairman, HSBC), Fizzy Barclay, Nisha Paul, Dan Snow and Edwina Grosvenor joined the party. Breaking through the economic gloom the evening raised over £120,000 for Magic Bus.
