Great Southern Police District Superintendent Ian Clarke will brave the cold and plummet into icy waters next week.

Albany’s top cop will be among a group of local bosses who will take the plunge for a great cause.

Triple M Albany’s Toss Your Boss fundraiser will return on Friday next week, as employers and bosses plummet into the cold waters of Princess Royal Harbour on Friday.

Supt. Ian Clarke, who will be tossed off the jetty next Friday, said it was a fantastic cause.

“It’s a great event, for such a good cause,” he said.

“It’s a great opportunity for a workplace to get together, have a bit of fun and a bit of a laugh, and do some good for children.

“Any additional funds to support children is a fantastic initiative. Seeing young kids suffer is probably the worst thing you ever have to see, so if we can make their day brighter anyway we can, then we do.” Southern Cross Austereo general manager Paul Cook said all funds raised this year would go to the Albany Health Campus.

“We love this event. It’s fun, exciting, terrifying, cold and all for a good cause,” he said.

“We have police, people from the City of Albany, bosses from all walks of life and beyond taking the plunge this year.

“I’m looking forward to sporting my latest pair of budgie smugglers already.”
