The Ice Bucket Challenge has indeed taken the world by storm with 2.5 million uploads to Facebook alone. This phenomenon has raised massive awareness of motor neuron disease which affects about 8000 people in the UK alone and social media been ‘saturated’ with videos of people finding more and more inventive ways of completing the challenge.
The MD of Padiham Glass Ltd, Anthony Clarkson, completed his Ice Bucket Challenge on Tuesday 2 September 2014 and nominated some fellow industry players to take part. Unfortunately, one nominee had already completed his challenge (Andy Jones of Edgetech) however Paul Williams of Northern Express Glass and Richard Hickson of Saint Gobain UK have graciously accepted and will complete in the coming days.
“I’ve made my donation to Cancer Research,” said Anthony, “because it is a charity that’s close to my heart and that of my family. Supporting the charity of your choice is important.”
The completed challenge follows hundreds of other people from the fenestration industry who have taken part, and shows that Padiham Glass Ltd is aware of its responsibilities to the community and understands the importance of giving back.
