DEDICATED fundraisers Jim and Pat Ainsworth are hitting the road for charity once again.
The Emley couple have raised more than £50,000 for good causes over the past few years.
And they hope to boost that total by more than £6,000 when they walk the 60-mile Able Tasman Walk through New Zealand at the end of this month.
Their trek through national parkland will raise money for The Children's Society.
"The walking is the easy part, it's the fundraising that gets harder every year," said Mr Ainsworth. "You can't keep asking the same people."
But the couple have already got the pounds rolling in thanks to tin collections at Morrisons supermarket at Waterloo, Huddersfield, in July and September.
Last year Mr and Mrs Ainsworth raised about £5,000 for the National Deaf Children's Society by tackling the 60-mile Inca trail in the Peruvian Andes mountains.
They raised the same amount for the same charity the year before by walking part of the Great Wall of China.
The couple train twice a week and attend a gym weekly.
Mr Ainsworth is semi-retired from the motor trade where he worked as service manager, and Mrs Ainsworth is an administrator in the education department at New Hall Prison, Flockton.
