Maurizio Borgatti, who works in Sense International's fundraising department, is about to take part in one of the ultimate charity bike rides.

Between 5 and 11 November 2015, he will be cycling 500km across Costa Rica from the Pacific to the Carribean, to raise funds for Sense International. This follows his 400 km cycle ride through Vietnam and Cambodia in 2014.

He says: "Choosing Sense International again as my charity really wasn’t a difficult choice.

"My challenge is tiny in comparison to the daily challenges faced by so many deaf and blind children in the communities where Sense International works".

You can sponsor Maurizio through his JustGiving page.
