However, this isn’t part of some elaborate plan by the agency to stand out from its rivals. It is in fact for charity.

Business director Dempsey will embark of a four-week fundraising plan for Red Nose Day, where he will wear 25 different costumes for the whole day, as he aims to raise at least £1,000 through his website, http://my.rednoseday.com/sponsor/25outfits.
