Swindon MP Anne Snelgrove this week joined forces with Oscar winning animated stars Wallace and Gromit to help promote Wrong Trousers Day (WTD) 2007.
Anne Snelgrove MP posed with the life-sized characters to help encourage as many people as possible to get involved with this year’s Wrong Trousers Day on Friday 29 June. Inspired by the animated antics of Wallace and Gromit, Anne posed with the cheese-loving pair in aid of children's hospitals and hospices. Wrong Trousers Day is being held on 29 June and has a sports theme – Get your Kit On.
Participants pay £1 for the 'right to look wrong' to help Wallace and Gromit’s Children’s Foundation to reach their target of 1 million participants by ‘Getting their kit on’ to raise money and help improve the quality of life for children in hospitals and hospices all around the UK.
The campaign, organised by Wallace & Gromit’s Children's Foundation and supported by sanofi-aventis, is also on the look-out for the team sporting the ‘wrongest legwear.’ Anyone has the chance of going up against wrong trousered celebrities in an online public vote for the dubious honour of the Wrongest Wrong Trousers in the UK.
Anne said: “Members of Parliament aren’t really known for admitting we’re wrong but on this occasion I’m more than happy to wholeheartedly support being wrong on Wrong Trousers Day. It's a great opportunity to raise money for a superb charity.
“Each year Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation raises hundreds of thousands of pounds to provide activities for some of Britain’s most poorly children who are undergoing traumatic treatment in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.“I would encourage people here in Swindon to log on to the Wrong Trousers Day website and get involved with the fun!”
