Twenty-five days of fancy dress fun over for Hampton man
A businessman has completed his fancy dress marathon, swapping his suit for 25 fancy dress outfits worn all day every day for 25 days to mark a quarter century of Comic Relief.
Giles Dempsey raised nearly £2,500 with his charity stunt that caused a stir on his daily commute from his Hampton home to work in Fulham, in client meetings, pitches and creative briefings.
The business director for marketing agency Billington Cartmell asked people to vote for the costume he should wear for the final day of his challenge on Red Nose Day on Friday, March 15.
He ended up dressed as Fred Flintstone with a dinosaur attached to him and set off on a friend’s stag do for the weekend.
The 36-year-old’s other outfits included a diver, banana, penguin, panda, spaceman, and Where’s Wally in front of an 80,000 strong crowd at Twickenham for the England v France rugby match.
The dad to be came up with the idea after he received overwhelming positive response when he spent a day dressed as a banana with his brother a few years ago.
