The wilds of Cambodia await a fund-raising hotelier, when he sets off for the country this weekend.

Craig Jarvis, owner of Ravenwood Hall Hotel, in Rougham, is gearing up for the fourth of five charity challenges he has undertaken to complete in 12 months.

He will test his biking skills on a 2,000-mile off-road route across some of the most remote parts of Cambodia, to raise funds for the Ravenwood Children's Trust, which supports causes including St Nicholas Hospice Care, a children's home in Goa and a Montessori school in Sri Lanka.

Craig said: "I really wanted to challenge myself this time to help raise as much money as possible for this worthy cause.

"Cambodia will be tough and an eye-opener in terms of the needs of local people. I plan to capture the challenge photographically, support St Nicholas Hospice Care's vital work and hopefully find some really worthwhile projects to fund for the local children."

Last year, Craig took on the Three Peaks Challenge, the Asics British 10k London run and took part in the Newmarket Town Plate horse race. Craig's final challenge is in April, when he will run seven marathons in six days across the Sahara desert, in the Marathon Des Sables.
