DADS Steve Bush and Mark Ball have raised £7,500 after completing six days of non-stop challenges that tested their fitness to the very limit.

Carpenter Mr Bush, 34, from Devizes and his teacher friend Mark Ball from Lavington were greeted by an army of friends and family when they arrived at Westminster Bridge in London at the end of their Epic Tri.

They had started with 24 hours of fell running, followed by a tandem cycle ride from John O'Groats to Lands End before being driven to Wiltshire to take part in the Devizes to Westminster Canoe Race.

Mr Bush said: "By far the worst part was canoeing through the Saturday night. We didn't think it was ever going to end but at no point did we even think about giving up.

"When we saw everyone on the bridge it was just so emotional. We are delighted with how much money we have raised."

A total of £6,000 will be donated to Dorothy House and the remainder will go to Devizes Canoe Club, where both men are members.

Mr Bush thanked the many sponsors that made the fundraising journey possible and the supporters who cheered them on.

He and Mr Ball are already thinking about taking part in next year's Devizes to Westminster race.
