Ice bucket challenge sFr Craig Fitzpatrick, Parish Priest of St Hugh’s, Newbold and St Joseph’s, Staveley, was nominated on Facebook to take up the Ice Bucket Challenge.

He took up the challenge at St Hugh’s on Sunday, 7 September. Vincent Payne took his role as the ice water thrower very seriously and surprised Fr Craig with not one, but with two buckets of icy water.

Fr Craig took up the challenge a second time at St Joseph’s after a weekday Mass. So far £257.76 has been raised.  All sponsor money will be sent towards research into a cure for motor neurone disease.
