Dubai's Tom & Serg are supporting the charity War Child by holding a street market this month
They don’t just serve great salads, desserts and their famous coffees. Dubai’s Tom & Serg is trying to spread their goodness to other parts of the world too, one step – or should we say rickshaw mile – at a time.
In case you haven’t noticed on their Instagram page, they have a team that has been racing their way around India on the Rickshaw Run for three weeks.
To celebrate their homecoming, Tom & Serg is throwing a bash at their Al Quoz café, named the best in Dubai for 2015 by yours truly.
The Tom, Serg and the 22Gs squad will be back in Dubai on August 26 and aptly will be serving up Indian delights to celebrate their time and achievements in the country during the 3,500km journey.
After tackling dangerous obstacles against almost 100 teams, the lads, Conrad, Philip and Kevin will be tucking into curries, holding a street market, and you’re invited to come along.
Customers will be delighted to learn they can enjoy a bit of retail therapy with their Shop The Night stalls and get creative with henna tattoos.
Plus of course they’ll get to hear all about how they did on the seven-horse power vehicle plus how much money they managed to raise for charity War Child.
On Tuesday the team posted online: ‘3 days to go and overcoming obstacles has been the name of this game, from 4am starts, rolled Rickshaws and cuts and scrapes. It's all for a good cause though!’
Current donations stand at approximately Dhs4,500 and their JustGiving target is Dhs30,000.
The page states: ‘In a nutshell, we're putting our lives on the line for a race that covers 3,500 kilometres across India's most beautiful and most dodgy corners. That's about the same distance from Dubai to Athens.
‘But the trip isn't just about exotic curries, chai plantations, tigers and what-not, the reason we're doing it is to raise funds for War Child, a charity that goes to the ends of the Earth to protect children from the brutal effects of war and helps to rebuild their lives.’
