A TEAM of local businessmen is preparing to set a new world record when they spend the Bank Holiday weekend bouncing on their Space Hoppers.

The men, led by Ipswich-based John Levis will be travelling to Brighton on Monday for the Bounce Your Balls fundraiser to increase awareness of testicular cancer.

The aim is to set a new world record for the most people bouncing on Space Hoppers and raise £20,000 for the Orchid Cancer Appeal for male cancers.

Mr Levis, managing director of software company Aevista, said: “Getting a few businessmen to bounce on Space Hoppers may seem like an odd thing to do but it's a great way to raise awareness of testicular cancer and encourage men to bounce their balls for medical reasons on a regular basis.

“We're looking forward to it and the aim is to raise as much money as possible. After the event in Brighton we're hoping to hold a similar fundraiser in Ipswich in September.

“We want to see hundreds of people bouncing through the town and hopefully lots of local businesses will also do their bit.”
