Wandsworth ABC Selfstore are raising funds for sick children in hospitals and hospices across the UK by taking part in the Wallace and Gromit Wrong Trouser Day this Friday 26th June 2015.
Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity is a national charity raising funds to improve the lives of sick children in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.
Since 2003, Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity has given over £2 million in grants to 291 projects in 93 different hospitals and hospices, providing life-saving medical equipment, free family accommodation, a range of arts, music and play therapy programmes, sensory equipment and facilities and respite care.
They support regional and local children’s hospitals and hospices, and ensure that our grants benefit local communities throughout England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
They are the only children’s charity supporting sick children in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.
Since its establishment, the charity has been supported by Aardman Animations, whose Oscar-winning characters Wallace & Gromit spearhead our fundraising. The founding Directors of Aardman Animations, David Sproxton and Peter Lord, as well as the Creator of Wallace & Gromit, Nick Park are Trustees of the Charity.
They fund projects that ensure that whilst in hospital and hospice care, children can still play, socialise and recuperate from treatment in a child-friendly environment. They also support parents and siblings as we know how vital it is to care for the whole family during extremely difficult times.
Check out this rather funny video from 2011 for ideas on how you can wear the wrong trousers on Friday.
Since Friday the self storage customers of Wandsworth have been trying to guess how many key rings are in the jar for a donation and will win half the total amount if correct.
All the staff will be wearing the wrong trousers and enjoying the fun this Friday 26th June.
