Seymour not immune to craze of the week.September 4, 2014 3:02am
Ice buckets were the name of the game last week.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a fundraiser for research into amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (motor neurone disease), was held all over the world, including Seymour and surrounds.
Among the fundraisers the Telegraph was aware of included one held by the Seymour under-16 netball side.
All 11 players from the Lions, as well as coaches and the team mascot, completed the challenge.
The ice was donated by Woolworths Seymour.
All the players and coaches made donations as did many of the spectators on the day.
The team has nominated St Mary’s under-16 netball and football teams, Seymour’s A-grade netball side and the junior club’s under-14 netballers, including coaches and team managers, to take the challenge and to continue raising awareness of ALS.
It is also taking donations until the end of the netball finals and these can be handed in to Scott Washington at Woolworths Seymour or to Angela on Tuesday and Thursday at Kings Park between 4.30
