TOP brass in the fire and police services have shown they are not afraid of a good soaking by taking part in a charitable craze.

Sussex Police leaders and chief fire officer Des Prichard completed the ubiquitous Ice Bucket Challenge, having buckets full of ice tipped over their heads before making a donation to charity.

Chief Constable Giles York accepted the challenge from Surrey Police chief constable Lynne Owens, before nominating temporary deputy chief constable Olivia Pinkney and assistant chief constables Robin Smith and Steve Barry.

Cadet Sam Jarvis, 17, from Hastings, also completed the challenge.

They raised funds to help the Motor Neurone Disease Association in the UK, in memory of Sgt Neil Costello, and for St Barnabas Hospice in Worthing.

Mr Prichard, East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service CEO, was also doused with two fire hoses alongside the ice bucket, raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support. He nominated the Fire Service College’s director of training Jon Hall, Hertfordshire’s chief fire officer Roy Wilsher and his son Ben Prichard.

Why did he not complete the challenge properly as it was given to him, holding a three bar electric fire.
