You may know that Heathcoat Primary School pupil Joe received treatment at Bristol Children’s Hospital last year, and has written a letter asking local people to get behind a national fundraising campaign this Friday [2nd June].
Following his road accident last year, Joe wants as many as people as possible to join him in supporting Wallace & Gromit’s Wrong Trousers Day. There’s a prize being awarded to the best ‘wrong trousers’ at our school on Friday!
Joe wants everyone from kids to businesses to take part by wearing the wrong trousers, or through some other ‘cracking’ ideas. His letter says:
“On the 25th August 2020 I was rushed to Bristol children’s hospital after being in a road accident. I had over 20 hours of surgery and me and mummy spent 3 and half weeks at Bristol Children’s Hospital and we still go now for my check ups. All the nurses, doctors and the staff really looked after me and made being in hospital kind of fun for me even with the added pressure of Covid.
I want to raise some money for the hospital but I need your help so let me tell you about Wallace & Gromit’s Wrong Trousers Day on Friday 2nd July. All you have to do is dig out those wacky trousers – from pyjamas to tu-tus and waders to work wear, anything goes, and wear them to school/work.
By donning your wrong trousers and making a donation you are helping to support sick babies and children and their families at Bristol Children’s Hospital and St Michael’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. I am going to try and get as many schools and businesses to take part in Wallace & Gromit’s Wrong Trousers Day!
I would also like children to design their own Wrong Trousers for a competition. Children will be given the colouring to complete on Friday.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
