Meanwhile, staff at Suffolk County Council and Ipswich Borough Council will also be ditching their usual office attire and going to work in football shirts.

The proceeds from the day will go to Somebody's Daughter, a registered charity seeking to provide professional help to vulnerable young people in Ipswich caught up in vice and drug addiction.
