The Ice Bucket Challenge for MND / ALS

The Ice Bucket Challenge for MND / ALS

Hello there!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Happy Sunday!
Well, what a morning!
Grace had the icy cool idea to nominate her Mum 
for the 
ASL/ Motor Neurone Disease Ice-Bucket Challenge.
So this morning, Dave trundled off to the DIY, because he decided the bucket we had was too small, and we needed more ice.

Our friend Gill was in charge of the camera, 
and Romeo was also intent on getting in on the act. 
Like I can’t see him behind me…
Oh, and the cat, too.

Afterwards, I asked, 
“Why did you go so slowly???”
to which Dave replied, 
“I didn’t want to make dents in your head with the ice-cubes!’
Do we believe him? 
As we were going indoors, I did hear him say to a mate, who is laying the garden path for us, 
“Now there’s something you don’t get to do very often.”
I also opened a Just Giving Page last night. 
Whilst it is vital to raise awareness of this horrible, debilitating disease, if I can raise a few pounds to help the cause, 
then even better. 
Many of you have already made a donation. Thank you.
Here is the link to my MND Just Giving Page. 
Hope you can help us raise our contribution.
And now to the important part.
I challenge:
to do the same.
The Entire Claritystamp Design Team.
I read the rule book on nominations, 
and nowhere does it say you can only nominate 3.
Let’s do this thing!
And just in case you forgot who you are:
Paul Church
Sam Crowe
Lynne Hammond
Dee Paramour
Jane Telford
Jo Rice
Maria Simms
Sylvia Marshall
Julie Owens
Kirsty Goodwill
Kelly Ketteringham
Mandy Branston
Elaine Milner
Sally Anne Hanes
Janet Pring
 Linda Spencer
Ann Rascenet-Cole

You all have 24 hours to get it together.
Good job it’s a Bank Holiday Monday!!
lots of love,

  4. That looked very cold so well done you! I bet the design team are thrilled that you nominated them too! Best get it done while the sun is shining as the weather report isn't looking too good for tomorrow.

  5. Barbara, I have a sneaky feeling Dave poured very slowly because he was actually enjoying himself !! You should have nominated him too !! Well Done though, what a brave cookie you are 🙂 xx

  6. Well done to you Barbara. Dave seems to have had a great time doing it very slowly….. Wish we got a you tube with all the Clarity team….That can be fun!!!!! Enjoy your Sunday now with a hot drink.

  7. What a trooper Barbara, and a great cause to do it for. I think Dave poured so slowly because he was enjoying it so much. I look forward to your nominees taking the challenge too. x

  8. Well done Barbara. I always thought you were one cool lady and now you've proved it! Dave certainly seemed to enjoy his part of the challenge, I can't think why?!

  9. Gee, thanks Barbara! So tomorrow morning, in Swindon Matt Kent will be throwing ice water all over me whilst his Dad, Mark Kent videos the entire soaking! Xxxx congratulations Barbara xxxx
    I will not let my Teamies down! Xxxx

  10. Boy, if I wasn't cold already that has really made me shiver! Well done you for nominating so many people who hopefully will make a big difference with their fundraising – MND is such a terrible disease. Susan x

  11. Brilliant. Made me feel very cold though just keeping fingers crossed that my kids don't get nominated because I know who will be next on list. I will donate though. Well done Barbara, sure you will raise lots of money. xx

  12. You Little Bugger!!!!! Well done Barbara. I accept I suppose!!!! xxx OK it is a really good cause. xx And Dave yes you did do that a little slow and did seem to really enjoy it. Mmmmm wonder if you will get any nominations?????

  13. Well done, Barbara, you made me smile – just waiting on being nominated by my kids 🙂 I have jumped out of an airplane to raise money for MDN – why didn't I think of this way before! It's affected our family unfortunately and I know that the funds raised will be gratefully received.

  14. Well done Barbara – and all while wearing a smile! Could not believe how much ice Dave put into the bucket lol. Mike and I will definitely be doing a donation to your page. Love to all from Helen and Mike xxx

  15. Hi Barbara. You are a star, well done for accepting the challenge , and great nominations : ) Looking forward to seeing them,especially Nigel! Dave, you enjoyed that far too much : ) My donation will follow. Keep us up to date with the total please Barbara. Well done again. Take care.

  16. Hi Barb,
    Just wanted to say absolutely brilliant – well done you! Mind you I do think Dave possibly enjoyed that a little too much! I'm amazed that you didn't nominate him. Hope that we get to see Leonie, Nigel and Dean do their challenges. Great news about the donations too – I've donated, only a little I'm afraid. Love Alison xx

  17. Hi Barbara well done keeping a smile on your face and yes Dave did enjoy that a bit too much 🙂 I hope everyone accepts your challenge – will Martyn do it too??? Will donate when we get back from hols but well done for raising so much already. Hope you are warm and dry too and the only ice now is in your G&T !! Take care love Diane G xxx

  18. Oh, Barbara, you are such a good sport – well done! I love who you challenged too so I do hope you can give us links when they do theirs, esp the C&C presenters. Perhaps one of the Clarity team will nominate Dave, just because he did it so slowly!
