Fred Dinenage takes part in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness of motor neurone disease

ITV News Meridian presenter, Fred Dinenage, has joined the ranks of those who have been nominated for the ice bucket challenge. It's where people pour a cold bucket of water over their heads - or have it done to them - to help raise money and awareness for charities working to find a cure to Motor Neurone Disease.

The awareness raising initiative also known as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in the USA - ALS standing for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The challenge dares those nominated to be filmed having cold water poured over them - they make a donation to help research - and they then challenge others to face a similar fate.

They then have twenty-four hours to comply or must, as a forfeit, make a donation to charitable organisation. Fred has nominated his co-presenter Sangeeta Bhabra and another colleague, Robin Britton, Head of News at ITV Meridian. He also nominated his friend and BBC South presenter, Sally Taylor.
