Supporters were encouraged to wear anything from a tie or socks to a bright orange wig in the Magpas Helimedix trademark colour.

Among those taking part in the annual event, held last Friday (May 15), was the team at Peter Lane estate agents, St Ives.

Another Huntingdonshire estate agent, Thomas Morris, had staff at all seven of its branches dressing in orange, raising just over £1,000 in the process.

School children at Wheatfields, also in St Ives, were allowed to ditch their usual uniforms in favour of bright-coloured clothing.
