Who does Jeans for Genes help?
Jeans for Genes is a charity that raises funds for research into serious and often life-threatening genetic disorders affecting thousands of children and young people. Funds also provide laboratory equipment and facilities, as well as valuable advice and support for families and carers.
We are again marking Jeans for Genes Day, on Friday 18th September, but in a slightly different format to previous years.
We will be encouraging everyone (students and staff) to make a donation of £2 and to wear or have some denim: blue, black red or green – any colour and anything, jeans, shorts, skirts, waistcoats, jackets, hairbands, bandanas, hats and bags!
If you have any old denim items that we could cut up as part of our artistic creations these will be very gratefully received!
On Friday each class will organise a different Jeans for Genes activity and join in a special zoom assembly.
Please help the students to choose some denim and if possible send in £2 to help support the vital work of Jeans for Genes. Please place any donations in the envelope provided. Thank you!
