LETTER: Ice Bucket Challenge has given us hope

As someone who has motor neurone disease (MND), I would like to thank everyone in Chesterfield who took part in the Ice Bucket Challenge a couple of years ago and raised money for research into this debilitating disease.

It has now been reported that a possible breakthrough has been achieved in understanding one of the contributory factors to the development of MND, opening the way to further research and maybe even a cure.

This was only made possible due to the generous donations from so many people both locally and worldwide. Thank you.
