Not one to be beaten for
community spirit, groups in
Arbroath have joined the world in the Ice Bucket Challenge charity phenomenon.
The Central Bar’s staff had an icey awakening on Monday as they undertook a chilly dunking outside the front of the bar.
Following a number of nominations across the group, manageress Julie McWalters thought a group dunking would be a great way of raising more money.
She said: “This way we could draw more customers in and get more sponsorship overall. We’ve even taken it one step further and said that people can pick a member of staff and pay to have them ‘iced’ again.”
So far the challenge raised £175 with the bar adding to the total to make it £300 to be donated to Macmillan Cancer.

Ian Angus also put himself in the line of fire, not once but twice, at Lochlands on Tuesday evening as gleeful participants through buckets of purple water over him to raise money for Relay For Life.
