After being kindly nominated by Miles & Matt, thanks once again guys, we thought it would only be right to get as many people as possible involved. We hoped to get approximately 10 volunteers from BTC Group to take part in the challenge, so we were astounded to when we saw that 25 people volunteered to help out, including all senior members of staff that were present! We were also heartened by everyone at BTC Group who donated towards this worthy cause.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge may be a viral internet craze, but we cannot forget the reasons it started in the first place, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) known in the UK as Motor Neurone Disease is a progressive. neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
Barbara Newhouse, President and CEO of The ALS Association has expressed her feelings on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge’s popularity “Words cannot express how incredibly grateful we are to the tens of thousands of people who have donated to support the fight against ALS. The money and the awareness generated through this effort are truly game-changers in the fight against this disease.”
BTC Group are proud to have done our part for ALS awareness, now we have nominated Alistair Mylchreest along with his Sourcing City Team, and Gordon Glenister along with his BPMA Team, over to you guys now!
