Brent Council accepts the Ice Bucket Challenge

Senior councillors at Brent Borough Council have become the first cabinet members in the UK to join in a world-wide social-media phenomenon and do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

The Ice Bucket Challenge has become a world-wide phenomenon and I am proud that my cabinet colleagues were up for the challenge. Caring for the most vulnerable in society is the top priority for this council and while, it was a fun and exhilarating thing to be a part of, we should remember that this is all designed to raise awareness of a hugely deserving cause. Motor neurone disease is a rapidly progressive and fatal disease, which can affect any adult at any time and can have a devastating impact on people’s lives, with suffers left unable to walk, talk or feed themselves.

This is why we all agreed to take part and why I’d encourage as many people as possible to make a donation.
