Wrong Trousers Day

Wrong Trousers DayHave you heard of Wrong Trousers Day? You can probably guess that it’s a Wallace and Gromit inspired day for silliness!

An opportunity to have a bit of fun wearing the wackiest pair of trews you can get your hands on, whilst raising money for a worthwhile cause.

This year’s Wrong Trousers Day takes place this Friday 26 June and Wallace & Gromit are urging the nation to join in the Olympic fun and support their favourite team by donning their weirdest legwear in their national colours and donate £1 for the right to look wrong.

I did see a very interesting pair
of ‘three lions’ leggings the other
day, which I MAY be brave
enough to don for the occasion.

Apologies to anyone who may see me!

Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation is a children’s health charity raising funds to improve the quality of life for sick kids in children’s hospitals and hospices throughout the UK. Since its beginnings in 2003 it has helped 77 children’s hospitals and hospices and given out grants totaling over £1.52 million!

And why not celebrate Wallis’s love of cheese by baking a cheesecake and selling it to friends or work colleagues for £1 a slice. Easy money for a fantastic charity!
