Video: Lincoln does the Ice Bucket Challenge – Part 4

Even more people in Lincoln have been getting creative over the weekend in response to the social media-fuelled Ice Bucket Challenge for charity.

Some even when to extreme levels, with one group of bucket victims facing 15 tonnes of icy water to help raise awareness of the Motor Nerone Disease Association charity.

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting.

The idea stems from MND sufferer Anthony Senerchia from Pelham, New York.

The challenge dares nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and then nominating others to do the same.

People from all over the world, including celebrities and influential figures, have taken part.

In the US, many people donated to the ALS Association.

So far, the fundraising challenge has raise almost £5 million for the MND Association alone.

Take the Ice Bucket Challenge and make a donation by texting ICED55 £5 (or other amount) to 70070, visiting the Just Giving page, or by calling 01604 611860 referencing the Ice Bucket Challenge.
