Diary: MacDonald throws his dignity aside for Nabs

It seems there is no limit to the lengths people will go to in the name of charity. Even those with a sound sense of dignity are not afraid to raise a few eyebrows with outlandish behaviour to raise cash for the industry charity, Nabs. Step forward the Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R managing partner, business and commercial development, Chris MacDonald, who transformed himself into the Bargain Hunt presenter, David Dickinson, for an evening of bidding on a variety of items.

Among the prizes under the hammer was the chance to be chauffeured to work by the agency's chief executive, Jim Kelly, in his Porsche. Also up for grabs was a bespoke pub crawl, organised by the managing partner, Tony Harris.

MacDonald's performance was the highlight of the night, which raised £1,500, although "cheap as chips" was not previously in his new-business vernacular.
