Jeans for Genes day on 18th September
Jeans for Genes day takes place each September, when people across the UK make a small donation to wear their jeans to work and to school. This Friday, 18th September, we want to have a non-uniform day to help raise some money and will have an assembly to raise awareness of genetic disorders.
Genetic disorders affect 1 in 25 people born in the UK and include conditions such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anaemia and muscular dystrophy. Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged up to 14 years.
Children can wear jeans/denim on Friday 18th September in support of this charity. If you are able to contribute £1, it would be greatly appreciated - send it in with your child.
