“It wasn’t too bad actually as I did it on quite a warm day so a lot of the ice had melted.”

“The anticipation was the worst part.”

“I was happy to accept the challenge as friends of mine lost their Grandma to Motor Neurone Disease so I have seen first hand the devastation it causes.”

To donate to the Motor Neurone Disease Association text ICED55 to 70070 which will donate £5 to the charity.
