On Thursday 17th and 18th July 2014, Our People’s Coach Street Team celebrated Nelson Mandela’s Birthday in a way we hope he’d be proud.

As a collective force, they successfully impacted 333 people, during their tenth OPC Flash Mob (a two day event) in Brixton, a London borough known for it’s Afro-Caribbean culture, creatives and vibrant markets and home of David Bowie and John Major.

Powered by Divine Chocolate and Regus, the OPC Street Team where a small but mighty team (regulars an 1st time street coaches), making a positive impact on the local people of Brixton through free speed coaching sessions in the blazing hot summer sunshine. Even when the day was the up, the day 1 team still wanted more speed coaching so took to the passengers on the Victoria tube line for some final coaching sessions and conversations.
