British teachers break record for longest journey in a ‘tuk-tuk’

Nick Gough and Richard Sears travelled near 23,330 miles to raise cash for education projects in
Africa, Asia and South America. If they can get their rickshaw “Tommy” through northern Chile they will become the first people to drive a tuk-tuk around the world.

The two set off from London on August 13, 2012 and have crossed 37 countries. Richard Sears from Guildford, said that over 57 million primary school-aged children still do not have access to education across the globe and that “many more” are in school but do not have access to decent learning facilities.

Nick and Richard will finish their journey next month in Rio de Janeiro and they hope to get their world record approved by the Guinness Book of Records.
