Don the denim next Friday

Don the denim next Friday

Pupils can swap their uniforms for denim next week and join Kate Moss and SpongeBob SquarePants to raise money for children with genetic disorders.

Schools that sign up for the 20th Jeans for Genes Day on Friday, September 18, will receive free educational materials, toolkits, assembly and fundraising ideas, and event checklists.

About one in 25 children is affected by a genetic disorder with 30,000 babies and children diagnosed in the UK each year.

Caroline Harding, chief executive of Jeans for Genes Day, says: “Just by wearing jeans and making a donation, schools have already helped us to raise millions of pounds to provide vital care and support for children with genetic disorders.”
