On Tuesday 12th June Tom Brake MP for Carshalton and Wallington, joined forces with Oscar winning animated stars Wallace and Gromit, to help promote Wrong Trousers Day (WTD) 2007.

Tom posed with the life-sized characters (pictured) to help encourage as many people as possible to get involved with the event, taking place for the first time on Friday 29th June, in aid of children's hospitals and hospices.

This year's sports theme - Get your Kit on - means participants pay £1 for the 'right to look wrong'. The foundation's target is set at one million participants and money raised will help improve the quality of life for children in hospitals and hospices all around the UK.

Tom is calling on people in Carshalton and Wallington and across London to take part in the event by visiting and registering for a free Wrong Trousers Day fundraising pack.

Tom said:

"This is great chance to have fun and raise hard cash 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."

Nicola Masters, director of Wallace and Gromit's Children's Foundation, also said:

"A million wrong trousers means £1 million for sick children in the UK. Team up today, and help us reach the magic million for the kids who need it most."
