We are offering the chance to see one of Huntingdonshire’s politicians soaked with icy cold water – but there is a price to pay.

The ice bucket challenge has already raised millions for charity and now Huntingdon MP Jonathan Djanogly has been nominated to get involved in the charity craze that has swept across the internet.

Having been nominated by his staff for the challenge, Mr Djanogly has chosen to use the drenching to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MND) and has asked Hunts Post readers to make a donation to this worthy cause.

The 49-year-old MP hopes to raise £250 before he goes under the bucket, which is scheduled for September 29 (Monday).

He said: “It’s a good cause and having been issued the challenge, I think I have little choice in the matter.”

Mr Djanogly added that he has not yet thought about what he will wear on the day, but would welcome suggestions.

Staff members will have the honour of pouring ice cold water over Mr Djanogly once the £250 target has been hit.
