Grand Pier Staff Don the Wrong Trousers to Support Children across the UK

Staff and visitors to the Grand Pier in Weston-super-Mare swapped their normal attire for wacky trousers to support Wallace & Gromit’s Wrong Trousers Day 2015.

The Grand Pier offered its full support to the nationwide event by asking all employees and visitors to wear the wrong trousers in return for a £1 donation on Friday 26th June.

All funds raised will go to Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity, which helps improve the lives of sick children in hospitals and hospices across the country.

Paul Charalambous, General Manager of the Grand Pier, said: “The Wallace & Gromit Children’s Charity is the only children’s charity supporting sick children in hospitals and hospices across the UK; therefore we are delighted to show our support.

“Our employees wore their wackiest clothes with pride and were more than happy to donate £1 for such a worthy cause.

“We raised £126 and are continuing collections this week to help the charity continue its fantastic work.”

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.
