Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester returned from Canberra last week to an icy reception at Ashleigh House in Sale.

The annual fundraiser for Motor Neurone Disease was a huge success, with locals auctioned off for the residents at the aged care home to pour icy water over.

“Bessie paid $350 for the pleasure of seeing me drenched and even gave me a hug and a little pep talk before the ice shower,” Mr Chester said.

“For the record, that’s a Sale Football Club jumper I’m wearing; I haven’t joined the Collingwood Army even though Scott Pendlebury’s mum, Liza, did the honours with the icy water after she copped the same treatment.

“It was a fun day, and plenty of money was raised to support research into finding a cure for MND.

“Well done to the staff for putting on an entertaining event for everyone who stayed dry.”
