Sussex Police Chief Constable Giles York in ice bucket challenge SUS-140827-154915001

Top officers at Sussex Police have joined thousands of people worldwide to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge.

Chief Constable Giles York let himself in for a soaking when he accepted the challenge from Chief Constable of Surrey Police, Lynne Owens.

He then set the chain rolling across the Force nominating his Chief Officer team to carry out the challenge across the force. Temporary Deputy Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney completed the challenge at Gatwick, Assistant Chief Constable Robin Smith at Brighton and Assistant Chief Constable Steve Barry at Worthing.

Leading cadet Sam Jarvis, who has been a cadet for two years, had the honour of tipping the bucket of ice over Mr York, who then repayed the favour for Sam.

Sam, 17, said, “It was such a privilege to tip the bucket over the Chief Constable and it’s completely different from anything else I’ve done in my time as a cadet.

The funds raised from the challenges from the four officers will go towards the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Motor Neurone Disease Association in the UK and St Barnabas Hospice in Worthing
