The Boxwood Hill Big Freeze returned with a big splash on Saturday, raising more than $70,000 for motor neurone disease research.

Locals slid into a pool of icy water for a good cause, including former West Coast Eagles premiership player Quinten Lynch, who came to the aid of his old club, the Boxwood Hill Bombers.
