Our clients are going Bananas - Bananas for the Norwich Gorilla Trail, that is.

A number of our thebestof Norwich clients have sponsored a Gorilla on the Norwich Gorilla Trail that is taking place this summer, and others have a Gorilla "hiding" in their business premises as part of the trail.

The Gorillas comprise 53 life-sized glass fibre westren lowland gorillas and 67 baby Gorilla mini-sculptures. The exhibition has been planned as a way to raise money for BREAK, a local Norfolk charity, and the Born Free Foundation.

The Gorillas have created a great atmoshphere in the city, and have generated a huge amount of interest - the first printed leaflets were gone almost as soon as they were distributed.

A number of our clients have taken part - the top photo (courtesy of All About Image) is a photo of BatGrill - the Gorilla sponsored by Quality Solicitors Clapham & Collinge. Batgrill sits outside their office in All Saints Green and even has his own Twitter account - @_BatGrill 

It's well worth following him on Twitter - BatGrill and the other Gorillas do get up to some mischief on Twitter, so join in the fun.

This week we held a joint charity fundraising and networking event at BatGrill's offices to raise money for BREAK. Lunch on the Green was a great success and we had amazing weather too.

One of our other clients, Copy IT Digital has sponsored Bradley Wiggins, which is situated on the St Stephens side of Chapelfield. (see photo below). Copy IT Digital are the largest independent photocopier dealership in Norwich and East Anglia. You can also follow @WiggoGorilla on Twitter. If you find WiggoGorilla and scan his QR code, you have the chance to win an ipad.

You can also find some of the Gorillas in Norwich Shopping Centre, Castle Mall and local Jewellers, Sonkai.
