Mr A. Truant is taking part in The Truants - India 2017 which is raising funds for Nordoff-Robbins Teenage Cancer Trust ChildLine
"It will be 2 years since the Truants cycled our way through Mexico and broke the £2m barrier in total monies raised for our Children’s Charities.
Just when we thought it could not get any harder than the heat of Mexico, the deserts of Morocco ,the jungle of Cambodia or the mosquito infested Nile, the ante has been raised! We are going to India for our sixth charity ride and this will have all of the above, along with 100% humidity. For many of us, cycling these 120 miles in 48 hours in dust and heat will be a great achievement!
However, insane we aren't, but crazy we are in order to raise as much as possible for the kids and the target we hope to achieve with our 42 riders is £500,000. So we are all making a huge effort and hope you will support us.
As is the case with all Truants I will personally be paying all costs related to the ride, so that every penny of your donation goes to the charities with absolutely no deductions. Nordoff Robbins collect and account for all donations before distributing equally between themselves, ChildLine and Teenage Cancer Trust.
The funds, as always, are split between 3 well deserving children’s charities: Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy, Teenage Cancer Trust and ChildLine. For more information on the great work they do, please click here: http://thetruantsuk.com/charities/

Race Nation provides online registration and fundraising for mass participation events through our platform “SportsGiving”, helping to raise vital sums of money for many good causes. On all donations we charge a small fee of up to 5% of the donation (which includes card processing charges). We do not charge a fee on any Gift Aid claimed. This means that if you made a donation of £10 with Gift Aid (worth £2.50), the charity would receive a minimum of £12.00.
All donations made through SportsGiving are considered charitable gifts and are non-refundable.
SportsGiving and its partners and charities represented reserve the right to refuse to accept any donations and to refuse to supply goods or services to any individual without explanation.
When a donation is made through SportsGiving the transaction is final and not disputable unless unauthorised use of your payment card is proved. If you become aware of fraudulent use of your card, or if it is lost or stolen, you must notify your card provider and if a payment is made to SportsGiving on a stolen card, you must notify us immediately.
Online transactions are subject to a small fee levied by debit and credit card companies. These third party charges do not exceed 3.0% and are included within your donation. The organisers of the event are responsible for other bank charges.
By ticking the Gift Aid box, and providing your details, you are allowing us to treat your donations as a Gift Aid donation. If the donation is to be divided by multiple charities you understand that the Gift Aid claimed will also be split in the same proportions. You confirm that you are a UK taxpayer and understand that if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
