I'm just pondering whether or not we should do an Ice Bucket Challenge at the marina in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association (my father in law Richard sadly has this awful disease). The weekend after next one of the men at the farm Paul Cliffe, and his wife Wendy will be running the Great North Run in aid of the same charity. We were talking about it in the office the other day and Dave mentioned that he'd seen a much more impressive approach to helping people — someone had decided not to do the ice bucket challenge, but to be more hands on — he'd gone to a food store and bought 4 meals then taken to give to a chap he knew lived rough on the street. So from now on we're going to adopt a RAC principle (random act of kindness)!
