AN adventurous woman is preparing to swap Ipswich Waterfront for the splendour of the Andes as she raises money for a children's hospice.
Jenna Saulter, an Ipswich recruitment consultant, is gearing up for a tough ten-day trek through the Andes, finishing with a visit at the magnificent Incan city of Machu Picchu.
Miss Saulter, 27, is aiming to raise up to £4,000 for East Anglia's Children's Hospices by completing the trek in March next year.
She said it would be a challenge but that she couldn't wait to tackle it.

Miss Saulter is originally from Trimley St Mary but recently moved to Ipswich Waterfront after selling her recruitment business in Mallorca.
She said she chose East Anglia's Children's Hospices as the charity which would benefit from the walk because it was local and other workers at the recruitment agency she works, Pure Resourcing Solutions, had fundraised for them before.
“Because I'm from this area I'm hoping everyone will get behind it,” she said.
As well as corporate sponsorships, Miss Saulter hopes to hold quizzes and auctions to raise money for the trip.
