ICE Bucket Challenge

Posted in: Staff News, Tenerife, The Harbour Club News- Aug 28, 2014 No Comments

The Ice Bucket Challenge came to The Harbour Club yesterday afternoon! No doubt those of you who have Facebook or accounts on other “social media” will have seen celebrities as well as friends dousing themselves with a bucket of freezing cold ice water… Of course, it’s fun (or not), but let’s not forget that it’s also for a good cause. It’s called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, because it all came about to raise awareness – and funds – for the disease Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – also known as motor neurone disease – which is closely related to the disease suffered by Stephen Hawking leaving him wheelchair bound and unable to talk without the help of a speech generator.

Donations can be made to the Spanish ALS Association (Asociacion Española de ELA) via a direct payment to their Bank Account or via PayPal

- BANKIA; IBAN ES09 2038 1923 15 6200003135
- PayPal: en al web: www.eventosadela.com

Alternatively, you can make your donation to the Motor Neurone Disease Association via their own page or their Just Giving page or by texting (if you are in the UK) ICED55 £5 (the amount of your chosing) to 70070.

All the donations collected at the resort this week will be paid in by Beatriz on Monday.

And now for the fun… here are Bea and Dave taking the challenge along with guests at the resort.
