Jamie Muir Wood from Capita Symonds’ Procter Street office is currently piloting an autorickshaw - ‘The Gin Express’ - from Pokhara in Nepal to Kochi in Kerala, Southern India (via the Taj Mahal) to raise money for charity.
The rickshaw is painted in the colours of a World War II spitfire (with lemon and lime influence) and the team (Jamie plus two of his friends) are donning flying hats, goggles and jackets (at least whilst in the frozen north).
They have already raised £1,000 for the adventure's nominated charities - Mercy Corps (India) and Maiti Nepal, a Nepalese charity which helps repatriate women trafficked to India
The team are also raising funds for the NACC (The National Association for Colitis and Crohn's Disease) whose work has enabled Jamie to participate...
