Two local reporters teamed up for the charity ‘ice bucket challenge’ this week following a nomination from Nick Heywood, the owner of Louth sweet shop Jassies, and have nominated local councillors to do the same.
Reporters James Silcocks (Louth Leader) and Lorna Davis (East Lindsey Target) teamed up in Louth Market Place on Wednesday August 28 to take part in the charity challenge, which has raised more than $90m for the ALS Association since it sprung in life earlier this month and quickly spread across the globe.
The ALS Association supports those suffering from Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a form of motor neurone disease.
James and Lorna, who both made a donation to the charity following the challenge, have now nominated a number of town, district and county councillors to carry out their own ‘ice bucket challenge’ and make a donation towards this worthy cause.
Councillors Andrew Austin, Christopher Green, Sarah Dodds and Steve O’Dare were all nominated.
