Thorpe accountants dress flamboyantly for charity

Thorpe accountants Murrells decided to ditch their usual professional appearance for a dress-down day for charity – but the clothing ended up being a little more flamboyant than expected.

The �100 raised will go towards the The Children's Society, a charity who help vulnerable and disadvantaged young people.

Joseph Nemeth, of Murrells, an accountancy company which has been in Norwich for more than 35 years, said: 'The day was filled with an unexpected amount of flamboyancy.

'We hope to encourage more local businesses to take part in something like this.'

And John Willis, principal of Murrells, said: 'I've been waiting for another excuse to wear my kaftan for ages.

'Our monetary contribution may be small, but we hope that our gesture will help the charity with the work they do.'
