Staff of an estate agent are putting both feet forward in a fundraising effort, by turning up to work in their slippers.

On Wednesday, staff from Brooks Residential estate agent, Norwich, will be trading regular work shoes for novelty slippers, to support Shelter Eastern Counties in its work helping people either keep or improve their homes.

Lucy Headland, Brooks manager said: 'At Brooks Residential we are always keen to support local charities.

'We spend every day helping people to find their dream home and would like to help raise awareness of people that are either homeless or living in inadequate accommodation.'

Lesley Burdett, service manager at Shelter Eastern Counties, said: 'We are very grateful that Brooks have chosen to support us. We thank Lucy and all the staff for their support '

The event has been organised part of a national campaign launched by the charity in response to statistics indicating that 100,000 children will be in temporary accommodation this Christmas.

Campbell Robb, Chief Executive of Shelter said: 'Not a single child should be homeless at Christmas, so this shocking milestone of 100,000 homeless children highlights the devastating depths our housing crisis has reached.
