Determined Avril Frankland is all set to get wet for a cause close to her heart.

Epworth store worker Avril, 59, is selling raffle tickets and is offering herself as a sitting target to the first prize winner.

She will accept an ice-bucket soaking from the winner of the draw, which is to raise cash for the British Heart Foundation charity.

“I have lost all my family.....my mum, dad, two sisters and my brother to heart disease, so I am keen to raise awareness about it and help the charity that supports research. I’m generally up for anything and will give the draw winner the privilege of tipping a bucket full of ice and water over me,” said Avril.

Avril is selling tickets at One-Stop on Station Road, Epworth, where she works.

The draw will take place on August 17.
