Ben Crossman, estates manager Orwell Park Estates, Nacton, near Ipswich, will join 75 cyclists as they take on the challenge from Nairobi to Meru to raise money for Child.org, an international development charity dedicated to ensuring every child has an opportunity to survive and prosper from birth to adulthood.

In 2016, Ben was part of a team of three which joined the Dumball Rally raising more than £14,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust by driving a vintage taxi across India.

“I like to set myself challenges and a 500 kilometre cycle across Kenya in five days on a mountain bike along partially unmade roads contending with altitude, high temperatures and the local wildlife certainly fits the bill,” he said.

To support Ben reach his initial fundraising target of £5,000 you can make a donation by visiting his fundraising page: https://child.org/me/ben-and-miles-ride-across-keyna
