Charity rickshaw Run from Shillong to Jaisalmer with Dave and Dan for The Hope Foundation
Dan Bradshaw, 47 and his brother David, 45 are on the road in an auto rickshaw, which is used extensively in Asia. The aim of this ardous journey beginning in Shillong and extending over a period of 16 days to end in Jaisalmer is to raise funds for The Hope Foundation.
The two brothers will be travelling on mountain roads and dirt tracks in what they state is the worst imaginable vehicle for the task. A total of 79 teams are completing the trip for charity.
Adventure is not new to the brothers who have even climbed the Everest and Mt. Kilimanjaro in the search to try something different. Both brothers are from Sands End and are working towards gathering funds for The Hope Foundation which works to improve human rights and help street children in Kolkata. The drive was expected to raise more than £2,000 for the said charity. At present, the total raised incl. Gift Aid is £3,291.25 from a total of 61 donors
Description: On Sept 8th 2013 Dan and David Bradshaw begin their 2200 mile journey across India unsupported in a 3-wheeled, 7 horsepower rickshaw. What could possibly go wrong…? On September 8th 2013, we will set out from Shillong in the mountains of North East India and head west for Jaisalmer by the Pakistan border. To make things more interesting we will be travelling the 2200 miles unsupported in a 3-wheeled, 7 horsepower rickshaw.
All the costs of the journey (flights, accommodation, food, rickshaw, petrol, insurance, beer etc) are being covered by us so all of the money you donate goes directly to our two chosen charities – the first a charity that aims to protect rainforests globally and the second, a local Indian charity that helps street kids in Calcutta.
Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the charities. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
