Crossing The Finish Line? They did it! In just 5 months, Joe & Verity cycled all the way from London to Mumbai. On the 25th of January, our magic cyclists crossed the finish line in Mumbai where they were met with a hero’s welcome by our colleagues at Magic Bus India. There, they celebrated their achievement at our office in Mumbai with a specially prepared cake.
Today I visited the Panchantala cluster located in the Dhakuria community of Kolkata. It is in this community where Magic Bus runs a Manchester City’s Cityzens Giving project.Today’s session was facilitated by the Community Youth Leader, Abhishek and Youth Mentor Sneha. The session had about 25 children of about 16 boys and 9 girls, in a session focused on social skills and emotional development.
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.
This is the plan for Joe and Verity, two passionate cyclists who are taking on the ultimate challenge: cycling all the way from London to Mumbai. They’re doing it to raise money for Magic Bus, to help promote the importance of education, and to see for themselves the work Magic Bus is doing once they arrive in India…
