Finally the Truants website is fully updated and having successfully completed the hardest Truant ride ever in India with temperatures over 90°F (32°C) and humidity as high as 96%  at times, I'm so pleased to let you know that our hard work paid off and we managed to smash our target and raised £605,479 to share equally between the three children's charities: Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust and Childline.
 
This wouldn't have been possible were it not for your continued support and generous donations made throughout the year,  so a huge thank you from me personally, all our Truants, and the charities and kids we are helping.
 
You can see our blistering experience in India via our Truants website:

To date the Truants have cycled in Egypt, Cuba, Morocco, Cambodia and Mexico, so this was the sixth and most certainly the toughest ride to date l but I guess we are getting better with practice despite high average weight and age and generally low fitness levels. There were 35 men and 6 ladies on this, and included six fine Rookies. The money raised on this ride takes our Total given to our children’s charities -  Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust and ChildLine up to £2,899,687. EVERY PENNY of cost is paid by the Truants, every penny you give us goes DIRECT to Nordoff Robbins to be distributed.
 
And it doesn't stop there. In June this year, the Heavy Metal Truants set off on their annual ride to Download Festival. We aim to raise over £110,000 which will take our Total Donated to over £3MILLION!! Not only are the riders donning lycra, but there will also be the Monster Rock Auction and raffle to aid them. Keep an eye out for more info soon on www.heavymetaltruants.com
