MP Jeremy Lefroy and his Parliamentary colleagues took on Stafford Cricket Club yesterday at their Riverway ground as part of a series of events to mark their major milestone.
But the experience soon turned chilling for Mr Lefroy, who had been nominated by local businessman Steve Glover to take on the ice bucket challenge currently taking social networking sites by storm.
Candidates nominate someone else for the challenge, before braving a dousing with icy water to raise funds and awareness for good causes.
Mr Lefroy chose his brother, Rev Matthew Lefroy, who had also been part of the Parliamentary cricket team to take on the challenge. Following his own drenching the MP remarked: “What a wonderful experience”.
