The Lake Grace Pingrup Football Club and the Boxwood Hill Football Club joined forces at the weekend to raise $53,000 for Motor Neurone Disease research.
In the second annual Big Freeze, players and locals dressed in costumes and slid into a pool of freezing water.
Both communities have seen the harsh reality of the disease and Lake Grace’s Alan Marshall paid tribute to good friend and local Steve King, who recently passed away from the disease, before taking the final plunge.
The Big Freeze was followed by a raffle and an auction of donations such as a voucher for a marriage celebrant, filleted lamb, filleted beef and a load of quality export hay.
Hundreds watched as rival teams bid against each other in the auction for the right to the name of the Bombers.
Together with last year’s total, the two communities have raised more than $90,000 towards the cause.
