Steve Fry in the middle of his ice bucket challenge to support charity

First published in News by , Reporter

A labourer accepted a challenge to have ice and water poured over him in Witham’s high street to raise money for charity.

Floor layer Steve Fry, 30, was tagged to do the ice bucket challenge by his brother-in-law as he was sitting in the Red Lion in Newland Street on Thursday afternoon.

Not one to do things by halves, Mr Fry, of Croft Road, Kelvedon, decided to complete the challenge there and then.

He said: “I just so happened to be in the pub and they had the ice machine there."

So, I'd like to know how wasting a bucket of water and ice supports charity? Was it the Lou Gerig's disease (ALS) challenge? If so, why not say that and maybe indicate the result of this craze?

And what on earth has his working life got to do with anything?

My opinion is that this was a simple dare, the result of pub talk and a simple attention getting ruse.

Someone prove me wrong.

One thing I do know though, is that he was considerably less **** after the event.

It's a journalistic ruse to create an initial biased mindset among the readership before they even assimilate the content of the article.

The trouble is that Newsquest aren't particularly subtle practicing this 'dark art'.
