Jeans for Genes Day

We will be taking part in this year’s Jeans for Genes Day on Friday 5th October. Jeans for Genes Day raises money for Genetic Disorders UK, the charity that aims to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders. Funds raised provide vital care and support for thousands of children with genetic disorders.

Genetic disorders affect 1 in 25 children born in the UK – that’s more than 30,000 babies born each year.Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 and under.

Taking part in Jeans for Genes Day means we could all make a real difference to affected children’s lives by helping fund the care and support they really need.

Children and staff are invited to wear their jeans on Friday 5th October to help Jeans for Genes Day reach its target of £2.5million.  We’d like everyone to take part so please send your child into school on the Day wearing their jeans and with a £1 donation.

  1. dear Susan Papas,
    my 3 year old daughter has sickle-cell disease and i think that it is fantastic that you are donating money to such a worthy cause! we homeschool annabelle because we are worried about her immune system, but if we decide to send her to a school next year then we will definatly consider sending her to heavers farm.

    I think you are an inspiration!

  2. Hello Kelly-Anne,

    Thank you for your lovely comment. Please do consider us, a number of our children have medical conditions (including sickle cell) and they take a full part in school life. If you do want to think about Annabelle coming here why not come in and visit and we can talk about how we could support her.

    Best wishes

    Susan
