A father and daughter from Leeds will join a team of 16 other adventurers for a 62-mile trek through the Sahara Desert.
Geoff Major, 52, from Rothwell, will set off with daughter Becki and the team for the trek on Saturday, October 26.
The five-day challenge will see them battle blistering temperatures of up to 45C in a bid to raise £25,000 for various charities.
Pontefract hotel owner Richard Metcalfe will also take part in the trek in aid of The Prince of Wales Hospice.
He said: “I want to help raise as much as I can so this incredible work in our community can continue.”
Geoff will be raising money for Heart Research UK, Muscular Dystrophy, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Geoff, who trekked across the North Pole last year to raise £18,000 for charity, said: “This time I’ve persuaded 18 other people to come along with me.
“It will be unusual to be concerned about being a dad whilst I’m busy trekking across the Sahara! Normally I’m very focussed on what I’ve got to do but caring for my daughter is going to add a new dimension.”
