    • Alison Whyte: (Talking about her husband) Some of his schemes are annoying - but then that's also the most fascinating thing about him. We've got a shed full of coconut oil.

    • Alison Whyte: When you travel in the Third World, it changes your perception. It sounds trite, but if we all practised it more, it takes so little to do so much. Over here, if you want to renovate a bathroom, it's going to cost you $10,000. In Cambodia, you can build a school for $10,000. That's a large, two-room school that has the desks, the blackboards, everything, and the Cambodian Government provides the teachers. The first project we did through the pub was to build a school for 120 kids.
