My story

[p]One new year's day 2012, James and Fred, two simple-minded English lads trekked their way through sweltering Indian desert, perilous jungle terrain and dirt-track coastal "highways" in an auto-rickshaw - nothing more than a glorified lawnmower - to raise money for Frank Water & Pump Aid. After making it back in one piece they vowed to command a mighty Rickshaw again. 2019 is that year.[/p][p]This time the journey starts in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo and finishes a week later on the south coast taking any number of routes along the way. Hoping to circumnavigate the country visiting remote villages, stunning beaches and wild, distant animal reserves, we will be undertaking this mildly silly adventure alone with no rescue numbers to call, and no back-up![/p][p]Just like 7 years ago, we intend to raise as much money as we can for our chosen charities. These charities are Cool Earth, St. Georges Hospital Charity and Mind. Please check out the various ways you can donate to these worthy causes and give generously. We hope to better the amount we raised in 2012 and have come up with some irresistible fundraising ideas we think you will happily splurge all your money on. [/p][p]Many thanks from James and Fred - the simple-minded rickshaw adventurers.[/p]
