Researchers looking into treatments for motor neurone disease in Sheffield are reviving last year’s successful ice bucket challenge - with a twist.

Scientists from the Sheffield Institute of Translational Neuroscience will be in Endcliffe Park from 9am to 5pm on Saturday, inviting passers-by to douse them in buckets of water in return for £1 donations.

The ‘Soak a Scientist’ fundraiser has been organised alongside the South Yorkshire branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
