It’s Chilly in Chesterfield! Toby Perkins MP takes the Ice-Bucket Challenge to Raise Money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association

Toby Perkins, MP for Chesterfield and Shadow Minister for Small Business, has undertaken the ‘Ice-Bucket Challenge’ in aid of motor neurone disease. Toby was doused with icy water by his wife Suzie and two children, Chloe and Lewis, outside his constituency office.

A very cold Toby said afterwards, “Thank you to Peak FM and Jon Chubb for nominating me. It was absolutely freezing but all for a good cause. The ice-bucket craze has raised millions for Motor Neurone Disease in a short space of time, as well as increasing awareness about the condition. It’s going to make a real difference to people’s lives”.

Toby has nominated his two children to take the challenge next, as well as Huw Bowen, the Chief Executive of Chesterfield Borough Council, and radio presenter Matt Forde.


Toby is appealing for people to make donations to MND by texting “ICED55 £5” to 70070 to donate £5.
