A Chesterfield pensioner joined the likes of David Beckham and Piers Morgan as he took on the viral ice-bucket challenge, at the grand age of 102.

Jack Reynolds of Hollingwood, completed the challenge dressed in nothing but a pair of Union Jack boxer shorts - before celebrating with a glass of whiskey.

A life-long Chesterfield resident, unfazed Jack said 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 ten young ladies come to dry me out afterwards so I liked that.”

Jack’s daughter Jayne 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 whiskey, that’s what keeps him going.”

Jack, who has four children, eight grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren, worked at Staveley Works for 40 years before he retired in 1975, he intends to make a donation to MND charity.
