Over the last couple of weeks the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has exploded in popularity, raising awareness for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, a disease which affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.
The donations for the UK Challenge have been going to MND Association, and have so far raised £4.5 million, the first major fundraising campaign the disease has had.

The August bank holiday meant my Facebook and Twitter feeds were full of people completing the challenge and I and several other staff members of ESE Direct were nominated, including ESE Direct as a company, so for your enjoyment here are all of the challenges
