An Exmouth GP has thanked his patients who have supported his sons in their bid to complete a staggered marathon for charity. 

Arthur, aged seven, and Rupert, aged five, ran a total of 26.2 miles during March, raising more than £900 for the FORCE Cancer Charity. 

Their dad, Dr Fergus Bostock, said they were inspired by the late Captain Tom Moore who raised millions for the NHS. 

Mr Bostock thanked patients of the Rolle Medical Partnership for their support. 

He added: “They have had great support, particularly from the staff and patients at Rolle Medical Partnership who have been following their progress over the course of the month.  

“They have smashed their original target of £250... myself and my wife, Sophie, are very proud of what the boys have achieved and were amazed that they managed to complete the challenge with time to spare.” 

They often got up as early as 6.30am before school to do the runs, and completed the challenge with two days to spare.
