Wiltshire Police’s Chief Constable Pat Geenty was drenched six times when he took part in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association and UK COPs charities.

The challenge has been trending on social media sites and people all over the world are taking part.

Chief Constable Pat Geenty said of his nomination: “I was more than happy to accept the challenge and getting soaking wet for a few minutes to raise money for two fantastic charities was well worth it.”

Members of staff were invited to come along, watch the event and even join in.

A total of six ice cold buckets of water were poured over the chief constable, led by Wiltshire and Swindon Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Angus Macpherson.

Members of staff were invited to come along, watch the event and even join in.

Mr Geenty has donated to the Motor Neurone Disease Association. MND is, at the moment, an incurable disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord.

UK COPS is a charity dedicated to helping the families of police officers who have lost their lives on duty.

Mr Geenty has now nominated Deputy Chief Constable Mike Veale, Assistant Chief Constable Kier Pritchard and his staff officer Nicky Davey for the Ice Bucket Challenge.
