A father and son will travel through Europe's mountains to raise money for a child bereavement charity.

Stephen King and his youngest son Oliver, 21, will be taking on the motorbike challenge in two weeks time throughout Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Italy on the Stelvio Pass, returning via Austria.

The pair are raising money for Norfolk-based Nelson's Journey, which supports children and young people up to their 18th birthday who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life.

Mr King, from Bardwell, near Bury St Edmunds, said: 'Having recently met them [Nelson's Journey] and some of the people who have passed through their doors I have seen what a brilliant team they are, what a need there is for the support they provide and how well they deliver that support...it will be a trip that delivers at many levels.'
