    to spread the word about our cause and the let others know how we help underprivileged students here in Phuket The idea came to Teacher Hamant back in September 2015 when he was watching the children play during lunch break He thought about how they needed to put in so much more just to get an education They do indeed go the extra mile for education This realisation made Teacher Hamant decide to do the same and go the extra mile for them only in a whole lot more literal sense All funds raised in this motorcycle ride for charity will be used to hire teachers purchase teaching materials and organise events such as birthday parties for the kids and cover all other associated costs in order to ensure that we are able to continue doing what we do here in Phuket Details of the journey The journey will start in Phuket and then proceed straight up north to Chiang Rai after passing through Bangkok After that Teacher Hamant will be heading east past Loei and then to Ubon Ratchathani Finally he ll be travelling to Trat and then heading back to Phuket where the journey began For more information head over to Teacher Hamant s official Fundraising page or follow his on Facebook Events Page Event Sponsors We would like to thank the following companies for sponsoring Going the Extra Mile A Motorcycle Ride for Charity Motor Culture Asia The Phuket News Wong Deuan Hotel Prachuap Khiri Khan Fern Resort Mae Hong Son Phuket Bike Week 2016 Media coverage Motor Culture Asia 28 March 2016 The Phuket News 2 April 2016 Recent News Pop Up at Bliss 7 May 2016 Going the Extra Mile A Motorcycle Ride for Charity Aussie Pub Kamala Pub Quiz 18 April 2016 Quiz Night
