EIGHT brave directors from the Romans Group have risen to the Ice Bucket Challenge and raised more than £600 towards Berkshire’s first children’s hospice.
The craze, which has taken over Facebook in the past few weeks, finally reached the local property services company, Romans, which recently merged with Jackson’s Residential in Henley. The money raised went to the company’s charity of choice, the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service.
Employees pledged hundreds of pounds to see a team of directors get soaked with icy cold water. Peter Coles, group managing director, said: “After the initial idea was put forward it took just two days to reach more than £500 thanks to generous staff donations. We knew we couldn’t back out then!”
