Cara Sutra’s Ice Bucket Challenge


Cheers Sam Hewson from ABS Holdings – thanks SO much for your nomination in your Ice Bucket Challenge video yesterday!

My first response was no. damn. way. I then had a think over it and couldn’t really come up with any reason not to get involved, especially as most of the ABS Holdings team were a good sport and had a bucket of iced water dumped over their head. The funds raised from donations are going to ALS (the US awareness association for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis a form of Motor Neurone Disease) and Macmillan Cancer Support who help those with cancer, especially terminal cases where they give essential palliative care. In particular I have a fondness for supporting the Macmillan nurses, some of whom helped not only my grandmother many years ago but also my partner’s father in his last few weeks last year.

So here we go!


As I said in the video, I nominate Mel from Voluptasse, Adam/Monika from ThatPosition and Hella from Electrastim. And a bonus nomination for Dale from ETO Magazine. Cheeky!

To donate to ALS click here, and you can donate £3 to Macmillan by texting ICE to 70550.

There are ways to donate other amounts on their website.
