THIS getting dressed in the morning can be a complicated carry-on.

That might explain why all the nurses at Sheffield Children’s Hospital turned up for work wearing the wrong trousers. But the fact that they did certainly cheered up the young patients.

Girls and boys were tickled pink to see the colourful assortment of not-so-fashionable legwear being worn on the wards.

And the day got even better when animation characters Wallace and Gromit turned up to join in the fun.

It all happened when staff at the hospital swapped uniforms for funky, colourful trousers for an annual fundraising event.

The Wrong Trousers Day, organised by Wallace and Gromit’s Children’s Foundation, raises funds for children’s hospitals and hospices throughout the country.

The Foundation has supported Sheffield Children’s Hospital for years and has made it possible for it to run arts projects, fund clown doctors on the wards and provide young patients with equipment.

And Wrong Trousers Day gives everyone a chance get a healthy dose of the best medicine there is - laughter.
