An Eastwood shop owner will take on the charity ice bucket challenge in public this week in memory of a family member.

Lovestationary owner Mike Heavey will pour iced water over his head to raise money for The Motor Neurone Disease Association.

His son-in-law’s mother lost her battle with Motor Neurone Disease in 2001, so the challenge will take place on the anniversary of her death.

The event will take place on Thursday September 11 at 1pm in the courtyard of The Eastwood Craft Workshops on Mansfield Road.
