Slapstick Supports The Grand Appeal

Jan 2014

Slapstick is proud to be supporting The Grand Appeal by donating 10% of our proceeds from the Gromit: Silent Comedy Canine event.

Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal is the only charity fundraising exclusively for the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and St Michael’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (Special Care baby Unit) at St Michael’s Hospital.

The Bristol Royal Hospital for Children is a world-class centre of excellence – one of just seven children’s hospitals in the UK equipped and able to offer specialist treatment and lifesaving care to over 100,000 sick and critically ill babies and children every year.

Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal was established in 1995 and has since raised almost £25 million to support a wide range of life-saving medical equipment, family accommodation, and patient comforts, along with a programme of arts, music, education and play facilities in the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.

The Grand Appeal is entirely independent from the NHS and receives no statutory funding, relying entirely on the generous support of the local community, businesses, grant-making trusts and other philanthropic organisations and individuals. The Appeal also has a very special relationship with Academy Award-winning Aardman Animations, who allow the charity to use the Wallace & Gromit characters to spearhead the fundraising.

Bristol Children’s Hospital provides world-class care to patients from all over the South West and South Wales, and it is only thanks to the many donors and fundraisers that we are able to continue a wide programme of investment in the Bristol Children’s Hospital. help us save lives, provide the best possible patient care and keep families together by donating to The Grand Appeal. Thank you.
