Tuk Tuk adventure to raise money for Cool Earth charity

Two Kellands Bristol financial planners are undertaking an Indian road trip with a difference – all in a good cause.

On 12th September, Kenton Price and David Lovelock, two of Kellands Bristol’s financial planners, will start travelling at least 2,500 km (and probably a lot more) from South to North India in aid of the charity Cool Earth.

They will be departing from the shores of Kochi in Kerela, heading north to Jaisalmer in the desert of Rajasthan.

Powered by complete ignorance, Kenton & David will be taking a 7hp Tuk Tuk the length of India, with only the most basic of mechanical skills and no experience of the country. For those of you who don’t know, a Tuk Tuk is sort of a three-wheel motorised rickshaw, with a top speed of just over 40mph.

In an effort to offset their foolhardiness and to do some good for the planet, they would be exceptionally grateful if people could donate a few pounds towards this great cause – please donate at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/tractortuk.

Cool Earth strives to protect our rainforests, mainly by supporting the communities who have called them home for generations, which we all know is essential for the future of the planet. They have operated across the globe for the last 15 years and have gained a wealth of support and respect for being so effective in what they do.

David and Kenton’s Tuk Tuk will be specially customised as a three-wheeled miniature tractor (Trictor? Tractuk?), so it will be as good as crossing the country in a, um, well, a Tuk Tuk! As you can see from the picture, the duo will be dressed in their best farmer gear, with a bit of Indiana Jones thrown in!

Evidence of their escapades along the way will be provided in real time, starting in advance of the adventure. You can follow their exploits via their Instagram page @tractor_tuk which is live now.

The cost of the excursion is completely self-funded, so all donations will fully go to this fantastic charity.

Sounds like an amazing adventure in aid of a very good cause. All at Kellands wish them the best of luck and look forward to their safe return.
