Ian Smith and Ann Press are soaked in the Ice Bucket Challenge

Ice Bucket Challenge soaks Uckfield Mayor for Macmillan

Have-a-Go Mayor Ian Smith underwent the Ice Bucket Challenge for Macmillan Cancer Support on Friday (September 26).

He was soaked during a coffee morning held at Pizza Express.

Cllr Smith was joined in the challenge by the chairman of the Uckfield support group, Ann Press.

The event – part of the national World’s Biggest Coffee Morning – attracted about 150 people to the restaurant for coffee and cake. It raised £1,000.

Pizza Express staff worked free by donating their time to the charity as well as making cakes.

The Macmillan committee supplied a variety of cakes for sale as well as running a raffle.
