A women’s business network took part in an ice bucket challenge today.

The Woodford branch of the Women in Business Network meet the first Wednesday of the month from 12pm to 2pm at the Adriatico restaurant in High Road, Woodford Green.

Each of the nine members who took part, who own their own businesses, will be donating money to ALS Association for the stunt which is to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

The challenge became a social network craze last month with celebrities Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Simon Cowell all having buckets of icy water poured over their heads for charity.
