When it comes to the Ice Bucket Challenge no-one is safe, as Pembrokeshire College Principal Sharron Lusher found out when she was volunteered to take the icy challenge alongside Deputy Principal Barry Walters and Assistant Principal Dave Evans.
Only days into the new term, the College’s senior managers had no idea that the academic year would get off to such a ‘refreshing’ start for them, and as news of the imminent soaking spread through the College there were calls for the ‘Prime Pouring Positions’ to be auctioned off with the three highest bidders securing themselves the pleasure of dowsing the principal, deputy principal and assistant principal – an opportunity too good to miss!
As the moment approached several hundred staff and students gathered outside the College to witness the College’s three most senior members of staff take an icy shower for charity.
So far the challenge has raised over £800 in just over 24 hours for Wales Air Ambulance and is the first in a string of fundraising events planned for this academic year.
To keep the Ice Bucket Challenge going the College nominated Glyn Jones, Dafydd Evans and Ian Rees from Grwp Llandrillo. Are they up for the challenge? And if they are, which college will be nominated next?
