THE MP for Wycombe missed out on the Ice Bucket Challenge last week after a Bucks Free Press reporter sent a nomination his way.
Steve Baker MP has since made a donation to charity to honour reporter Andy Carswell’s nomination.
After Andy was soaked on Friday last week, Mr Baker said: “Congratulations to Andy Carswell on his ice-cold soaking and many thanks for the nomination.
“Following my time in the stocks a year or two ago in Marlow Bottom, of course I would have been delighted to accept but with the election in the offing, I would not want to impose ice-cold soakings at 24 hours’ notice on three voters over a bank holiday weekend.
“I hope to recover from the disappointment soon and I look forward to making a donation to the UK charity of Andy’s choice.”
This came after Andy was nominated by WWFC manager Gareth Ainsworth.
