The Ice Co’s 2022 Annual Charity Day as always was a huge success! The whole team had an incredible day from start to finish. We ate, we laughed, we got rained on, we competed, but most of all we made some fab memories and raised an incredible amount of money for the charities closest to us. It was a tremendous team effort by all.
This year we wanted to add some healthy competition into the mix. Along with our main raffle, free lunch and holiday day off raffle, this year we introduced ‘The Ice Games’ to the day. This saw 12 teams of x4 battle it out in head-to-head obstacles.
The games included an eliminator run, ice bag throwing competition, a gladiator battle and sumo wrestling. The Psycho Penguins were the winners in the final, pulling for dear life in a tug of war battle against the OG Grannys. The winning team took home a bottle of booze each and a shiny gold medal. Well done guys.
Here’s some action photos from the games…
