A pensioner joined the likes of David Beckham and Piers Morgan as he took on the viral ice-bucket challenge – at the grand old age of 102.
Jack Reynolds completed the challenge dressed in nothing but a pair of Union Jack boxer shorts – before celebrating with a glass of whisky.
A lifelong Chesterfield resident, unfazed Jack said that, while it was chilly, the charity stunt was just ‘one of those things’.
He added: “I did it because of this family of mine, they are fun-makers, they do all sorts of things and I have to be ready for anything.
“I’m game for a laugh, it was one of those things. It was cold but I had 10 young ladies come to dry me out afterwards so I liked that.”
Jack’s daughter Jayne Goodwin said her dad, who is a regular iPad and Facebook user, was an ‘amazing man’.
She added: “It was so funny, he’s always game for a laugh, he’s incredible.
“He went into the bedroom and just came out in a pair of Union Jack boxer shorts. Afterwards he just sat down and had a Grouse whisky, that’s what keeps him going.”
Jack, who lives in Hollingwood,has four children, eight grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren.
He worked at Staveley Works for 40 years before retiring in 1975. He will be making a donation to the motor neurone disease charity.
