Jeans for Genes

Jeans for Genes

Students at Oakley Vale took part in ‘Jeans for Genes’ day on Friday 22 September and donated £1 to wear their Jeans into school for the day raising £317.90 for the charity.

Jeans for Genes Day is the annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder.

It is estimated that one in 25 children is affected by a genetic disorder that is 30,000 babies and children that are newly diagnosed in the UK every year.

Monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations for projects that aim to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders.

Thank you to everyone that took part and helped us raise such a fantastic amount for this worthwhile charity.
