CLAYTON Goltz is about to get iced - and so are his colleagues.

While he's a little wet behind the ears when it comes to fads, the 23-year-old Gladstone bar-tender warmed to the idea of taking on an ice bucket challenge to help out a mate.

The fad, which is sweeping the globe and involves dumping a bucket of ice water on someone's head, is a fun, if some what chilly, way to raise money.

Mr Goltz is using his icing tomorrow night to bring in dosh for a cause that's close to his heart.

"I was nominated by a good friend of mine - Paul Bidmeade - his mother was recently diagnosed with motor neurone disease," the former South Australian said yesterday.

He said he really warmed to his mate's mum.

"I've met her plenty of times," he said.

"She's funny, a good laugh - yeah she's a nice lady."

Mr Goltz said he wasn't normally a follower of fads.

"I've never planked or anything like that - planking never raised money for anybody - this is completely different to that," he said.

Mr Goltz' challenge will be held at Gladstone's Queens Hotel.

Around 10 buckets of ice water will be sold for $50 each after 6.30pm.

The water will then be poured over Mr Goltz, his colleagues and anyone else who wants to get involved.
