TM Hotel Dehli

International Widows Day on the 23rd June 2014 is fast approaching and we will be involved in a number of events. Therefore, I want to take this opportunity to let you know you about these occasions. The Loomba Foundation is organising two events, one in London in the House of Lords and the other one is in India in Delhi.

Chris Parsons and his 30 Marathons in 30 Days

Chris Parsons has been a friend of the Loomba Foundation for some time and is a great ambassador. In 2011 he cycled just over 2,000 kilometres from London to Gibraltar and raised $200,000 in the process. 2015 will mark 30 years that Chris has been working for an international law firm called Herbert Smith Freehills and to celebrate this achievement, he has decided to take on the challenge of walking 30 marathons in 30 days. This is an amazing endeavour and he is also aiming to raise $1 million for the Loomba Foundation!
