CHILDREN from The Redstart Primary School in Chard - part of The Redstart Learning Partnership - attended school wearing their weirdest, wackiest wrong trousers to raise money for the right to look wrong.

The Grand Appeal is a charity that has fundraised for Bristol Hospital since 1995 with the Wrong Trousers initiative starting in 1997.

The charity is very close to the hearts of the Redstart community as as one of the pupils was looked after by the Bristol hospital.

Rhys Rodway was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2018 and sadly passed away aged seven in early January 2020.

His parents set up the Rhys Star Fund in memory of their son.

Rhys was at Redstart from Reception until Year 3 and the school has have regular fundraising activities to support his fund.

On the day, all the children arrived wearing their school uniform on the top and a whole variety of trousers and skirts, including pyjamas, superheroes and tie-dye.

Rhys' two sisters Rhianna and Aliyah also enjoyed taking part.

Pupils raised £381 for the fund and hope it will help support Bristol Hospital continue its high quality work with their patients.

Rhys's mum Kirsty Rodway said: "It really means a lot that the school is raising money in Rhys's memory and every penny will help other children going through cancer."
