A RETIRED Exmouth firefighter has more than quadrupled a £3,000 fundraising target while completing a hike in memory of his wife.

Terry Dimond, from Honiton, has completed the Inca Trial in aid of Cancer Research UK after his wife, Vivian, died of breast cancer.

Mr Dimond teamed up with Andy Mitchell, also from Honiton and who also lost his wife to cancer, and together the pair hiked at altitudes of 15,000ft, raising £12,703 for cancer research.

The pair had aimed to raise £3,000 for the cause.

Earlier in the summer Exmouth firefighters raised more than £1,000 for Mr Dimond and Mr Mitchell's trek by holding a fire engine pull along Exmouth seafront.
