Celebrating 10 years !!
Wrong Trousers’ Day started in the South West in 1997 to launch the capital appeal to build the new Bristol Children’s Hospital. In 2000, the charity grew to support sick kids in children’s hospitals and hospices in Bristol, Sheffield, Cardiff, Nottingham, Leicester, Manchester, Stockton-on-Tees and Newcastle.
The charity is backed by the treble Academy Award-winning clay characters, Wallace and Gromit, created by Nick Park at Aardman. The day is inspired by their massively successful film, ‘The Wrong Trousers’.
In 2003, Wrong Trousers’ Day became a national fundraising event supporting children’s healthcare in the UK through the creation of Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation.
Since 2003, Wrong Trousers’ Day has been an outstanding success and raised over £1.82 million for sick kids in 87 children’s hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.
