WATCH: Donegal pharmacy takes on the Mannequin Challenge

A village in Donegal has taken part in the Mannequin Challenge, and it's all in the name of a good cause.

On Saturday, staff and customers from Garrett O'Donnell Pharmacy, Glenties took part in the Mannequin Challenge to raise awareness of the town's 'Let your loved one light up Glenties' campaign.

Glenties has been illuminated every Christmas for the past 17 years, but they have never been able to upgrade their decorations in that time.

To replace their now defunct lights, the town are selling individual bulbs to people, and the name of a deceased loved one can be written on the bulb.

Pharmacy owner, Garrett O'Donnell MPSI, is donating a bulb for every person who took part in last weekend's Mannequin challenge in his shop - enough for 47 bulbs.

Glenties' brand new Christmas lights will be lit up on December 4th.
