On Friday August 29, patients and members of staff at St Peter & St James Hospice raised money by carrying out a different kind of ice bucket challenge. The Hospice raised money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association using a tractor!
Following in the frozen footsteps of David Beckham, Justin Timberlake and Steven Gerrard, St Peter & St James Hospice raised money for this charity because a number of patients are living with Motor Neurone Disease. One huge bucket was used which was part of a tractor carrying ice and gallons of water. You can see the challenge at www.facebook.com/StPeterStJames on the Hospice’s Facebook page. The Hospice wishes to thank John Bedford, from Town Place Farm and Equestrian Centre, Scaynes Hill, for supplying the tractor and making the challenge possible. For more information on the ice bucket challenge, please go to the Motor Neurone Disease Association’s website - www.mndassociation.org
If you run, or are involved in a group, and would like to help the hospice by raising money, then please contact Carol Hughes, Community Fundraiser, on Carol.Hughes@stpeter-stjames.org.uk or 01444 470811.
