ISLAND MP Andrew Turner and Isle of Wight Council chairman Cllr Ian Ward today (Thursday) took part in the Ice Bucket Challenge in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA), the chilly charity craze sweeping the country.
Cheered on by volunteers from the Isle of Wight branch of the MNDA at the Riverside Centre, Newport, they each had a bucket of icy water poured over their heads.
Rather than nominate others to take part, they instead urged people to support the Island charity.
Mr Turner said afterwards: "It was jolly cold. I was glad to have a nice warm coat to put on afterwards. On this occasion, I'm happy to be soaked for charity but I don't want to set a precedent."
Cllr Ward said: "It wasn't as bad as I thought. I thought it would be much colder considering how much ice was in there. It was worth it for a good cause though. We would be a pretty miserable bunch if we didn't have a go, wouldn't we?"
