ITALY is the destination by tandem, for a young couple eager to raise cash for an Ipswich-based cause.

Paul Bennett, originally from Netley Close, Ipswich, is now working at Steamboat Springs, Colorado, as a children's ski and snowboard instructor

with girlfriend Kaori.

Their 28-day trip is going to take them from Ipswich on April 28, to Bologna by tandem cycle.

Paul, 26, said: "In this job I get to teach so many children who don't appreciate what they have the privilege to be doing. This is a real shame as when they do appreciate it the job is wonderful.

"For this reason we've decided to raise money for Sargent Cancer Care."

families. Part of this care involves going to the Lake District where the

children can rock climb, sail and do other activities.
