Making a Difference: The Truants Raise Over £540,000 from Kerala Trip; Where Should They Go Next?

[HD video and podcast below] Making a Difference: The Truants. Exclusive interview with Mark Fuller, CEO of Sanctum Hotels.

 In this interview, filmed at the Karma Sanctum Soho Hotel in London on 15 November 2017, we ask Mark about The Truants and their recent cycling trip in Kerala, India to raise money.

The Kerala trip was The Truants' sixth ride so far, with the others taking place in Egypt, Cuba, Morocco, Cambodia and Mexico.

The total raised from The Truants' ride of Kerala, India (over £540,000 at press time) will be added to the £2,275,290 already given to the three children’s charities that The Truants support –  Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust and ChildLine. Every penny of cost is paid by the Truants, every penny given to them goes DIRECT to Nordoff Robbins to be distributed. Watch the video interview to learn more. Click to enlarge.

Steven Howard of TravelNewsAsia.com asks Mark how much was raised, how the money raised is used - and whether it covers their expenses or not, which charities are supported by their efforts, what they experienced during the trip, and where the next trip will be to.

 We also discuss cancer and, as a survivor of thyroid cancer, what advice Mark has for anyone unfortunate enough to find themselves in a similar situation. All that and much, much more in the video and podcast below.

As you will learn in the interview, The Truants have not yet decided where they are going on their next trip. They are open to suggestions, so if you have any ideas please email them directly. Their website is: The Truants.

The websites of the three children’s charities that The Truants support equally are: Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy, ChildLine/NSPCC and Teenage Cancer Trust.
