Two brothers have exceeded their expectations by raising 17 times more money than they hoped for in a challenge.

Toby and Jacob Bush, of Rous Court, Baston, skied 25 miles in France and cycled 25 miles around Rutland Water to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.

They set out to raise £100 but have gathered £1,785 in sponsorship.

Jacob, eight, and seven-year-old Toby completed the first stage of the challenge during a half term holiday in France. They were joined by their dad Darren, who owns Tandem Solutions in Bourne, on the ski slopes and supported by their brothers Noah, five, Seth, three, and Elijah, 16 months, and mum Emma.

They also biked around Rutland Water on Saturday.

They hope to present cheques to the charities at Baston Primary School.
