BRAVE THE ICE CHALLENGE, COMPLETED IT MATE.
2 minutes of Ice tub submersion everyday of Feb...
Everyday of February Pete and Gemma have been dunking themselves into cold water for 2 minutes because they are crazy as well as to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
February is national Heart month so it was the perfect time to raise awarness and funds especially because heart disease is the number one killer in the UK.
There were swear words here and there as well as celebrity appearances... and by celeb's we mean we dragged other members into the challenge throughout the month.
A big shout to Gemma who went out of her way and brought a wheelie bin off amazon to take on this challenge. After cracking what is the best way to get in and out of the bin... she was newly nicknamed BIN HOFF and went BINNY DIPPING everyday.
In total we raised in excess of £500! which is amazing, a big thank you to everyone that donated
