Friday 18th September is Jeans for Genes Day. 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. We’d like everyone to take part so please send your child into school wearing their jeans and with a £1 donation.
If your child has P.E on Friday they can still wear jeans to school and bring their P.E. kit in with them to change into.
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. If you’d like to know more about Jeans for Genes Day you can visit their website at www.jeansforgenesday.org.
