The Ice Bucket Challenge (BH weekend, part 2)

With two days of decent weather, Monday was going to be the quietest of the three day weekend, as the rain had to come at some point. I’m not sure the rain was supposed to arrive quite like this:

My old school friend Matt nominated me for the Ice Bucket Challenge, so I couldn’t refuse. There having been recent internal discussions, edicts issued and general disquiet about councillors’ dress code (I’m not quite sure why!), I decided to present myself as I would do to meet any resident of Blenheim Park…

One of the advantages of doing the challenge is having the ability to nominate three others. Having known Cllr Ian Gilbert (Lab, Victoria) for many years and his love of a challenge I thought it would be cruel to not allow him the same experience!

It’s all for a good cause, it appears to have started in the USA with ALS (although the Motor Neurone Disease Association is probably best in the UK), MacMillan seem to have adopted it in the UK. Both great causes, so to stop any disputes, I’ve made a small donation to both charities.
