Half Way There & Still Going Strong!

Joe & Verity’s Journey So Far
Click To Expand

A little over 3 months after setting off, Joe & Verity are quickly catching up on the half way point of their epic journey cycling the 5000 miles from London to Mumbai. All along their route they’ve discovered that friendship and hospitality transcends culture and language (and sometimes species!), and we’re sure they will never forget all they’ve seen and done.

But Joe & Verity’s hard work cycling all that way wasn’t just for the sense of adventure, but to help raise money for Magic Bus and to help ensure that thousands of children and young people in India get the support they need to escape poverty for good.

All across Europe, Turkey and the Caucuses, Joe & Verity have enjoyed incredible hospitality everywhere they’ve been, and you can show your generosity too. So far our cyclists have raised over £3,300, but we want to help them raise £1 for every mile travelled. So please donate today to help Joe & Verity raise £5,000 for Magic Bus and give children across India a chance at a brighter future.

Once you’ve donated, you can check out the links to Joe & Verity’s fantastic blog that charts all of their adventures so far. We really recommend this fantastic read!
