Scotland’s best-loved amateur weatherman is toasting a flood of donations to his favourite charity after joining forces with a nearby bottled water firm.

But even Windy Wilson failed to forecast how popular their partnership would become.

The Auchterarder influencer teamed up with bosses at ió fibrewater, thinking it might result in a handful of donations from his 400,000 followers.

Instead the scheme has raked in more than £500 for Cardiac Risk In The Young in the first six weeks.

And now Windy, 58, and the ió fibrewater crew are raising a glass to their future fundraising success.

Money raised from the pairing will help to fund more community heart screening sessions for young people.

It comes after Windy’s son needed open heart surgery in 2020.
