If you read my blog last week you may remember that I was preparing to do the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for the Cure For MND Foundation. If you missed it you can read the post here.

While the motivation to do the challenge (the illness of our dear friend Kathie) was extremely upsetting it was great to come together as a group of very long term friends (we have all known each other since since school – some of us from infants and primary school, others high school) and do something positive.

A huge thank you to all those who donated. Through your generosity we have raised $4399, well over our goal.

Luckily the sun was shining on the day and Kathie was able to come and watch our antics as we took it in turn to freeze our butts off!

Here’s a few pics to let you know how it went.

 

Are we really doing this?

Friends.

Friends.

 

We did it!!!

We did it!!!

 

Despite the sadness we managed to smile together.

Where would we be without friends?
