“I admire Bobby’s determination to carry out such an impressive feat at the age of 80 and I can appreciate just how challenging the walk will be for him, both physically and mentally. Bobby is walking to raise £1,500,000 for worthy causes in the UK and abroad and I wish him the very best with the walk and will watch his progress with interest.”
"On behalf of everyone at the Ealing MS Society, I would like to say a huge thank you to Bobby and the India Association, for choosing the Ealing MS Society to benefit from the Diwali Dinner & Dance. Not only was the evening thoroughly enjoyed by the MS branch members that attended, but the event raised a fantastic £6,000, which will be used to provide welfare support to individuals living with MS in the local community. Thank you all once again."
"I am writing to offer sincere thanks for your most generous donation of £80,000, raised by Bobby's Walk. I note with great and renewed gratitude that in the history of St. Mark's Hospital Foundation, there has never been a fundraising event that has exceeded that raised by Bobby's Walk. Words seem all too inadequate to express how grateful everyone at St. Mark's is to you and the India Association."
“Bobby has a proven track record of fundraising by long distance walking. In 2004/5 he walked the reverse route in India and raised over £110,000 by his endeavors. In 2008 he walked from the Parliament at Edinburgh to the Parliament in Westminster which raised approximately £100,000 ... I very much hope that it will raise substantial funds for this deserving charity.”
"Bobby has an incredible commitment to raising money for charities helping those who need it the most and his upcoming walk is a great testament to his determination. Walking 2600 miles across India while turning 81 is an amazing feat and one that Bobby will be undertaking benevolently to support the vulnerable ... I wish him great success in his generous endeavor."
“The money raised by Bobby’s amazing marathon walks kindly donated to our research arrived just when both my Institute NPIMR and the St Marks Research Trust were desperate for funds as both charities struggled in the face of the recession. His generosity not only allowed us to carry on with our research but provided the springboard for expansion such that in 2014 both charities are thriving and now succeeding beyond my wildest dreams. We will never forget that.”
"I have known Bobby Grewal for several years and have supported his numerous activities to raise awareness and funding for deserving charitable causes. He is an inspiration for others and his compassion, generosity and energy is matched only by his modesty. I will continue to support him in whatever way I can and wish him well on his forthcoming walk in India."
