Neil and Andy Clarke took on the Etape Loch Ness on 23 April, which is a 66-mile (106km) route around the loch starting and finishing in the Highland capital of Inverness.

They took on the challenge to raise money for Friends of Roxburghe House Grampian, in memory of their mum Marjory and the care she received at Roxburghe House. And their efforts raised the amazing sum of £1,929 with Gift Aid.

Neil said: “Roxburghe House was amazing, not only in giving mum the very best of care and medical attention but in supporting us as a family in her last few weeks against cancer.

“We want to give back something to the hospice for all their kindness and care, and we’d also like to thank the 67 supporters who donated to help us reach our total.

“The race itself was a great experience and we both absolutely loved it.
