Charity appeal: Giles Dempsey slips on his banana skin for Red Nose Day
Charity appeal: Giles Dempsey slips on his banana skin for Red Nose Day

Many people have been in a slippery situation during a pitch, one in which Billington Cartmell's Giles Dempsey is likely to soon find himself in when he walks into a pitch dressed as a banana.

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.

The outfits will range from a spaceman to Batman, a banana and a chicken. Unfortunately for Dempsey, during the next 25 days he will be expected to take part in a few pitches.

Let’s hope his Red Nose Day antics don’t leave him red-faced.
