Here is what Alan says:

"Having lost a friend to MND - and as I'm undertaking a fairly extreme variation of the ice bucket challenge in swimming in the cold water of the English Channel! - it will be fantastic if you can help me to raise funds for a most worthy charity.

Please support MND in their effort to find a cure, and in supporting those families who are affected by MND."
