Organiser : The Loomba Foundation

A new initiative of Chris Parsons – “CYCLING FOR WIDOWS” was launched at a lunch hosted by the British High Commissioner to India, Sir Dominic Asquith KCMG, at his residence. It was attended by Lord Raj Loomba CBE, Mr. Chris Parsons and many high-profile business leaders. 

 Chris Parsons, a lawyer with international law firm Herbert Smith Freehills, spends most of his time in India as chairman of the firm’s India practice. He is also a philanthropist and wants to support widows and their children in India. He will be cycling from Kanyakumari to Srinagar, 4,500 Kms in 45 days, and aims to raise US$ 450,000 to help widows in India. 

 He is focused on a new challenge for 2020 when he plans to cycle the length of India from Kanyakumari in the south to Srinagar in the north, a distance of some 4,500 km which he hopes to complete in about 45 days, and he is keen to support widows in India through the Loomba Foundation again. He will start cycling on 3rd February, 2020 from Kanyakumari.
