The LLOB Sixth Form showed their support by wearing their jeans on Friday 23rd September. During their tutorial sessions, the students were given the opportunity to learn more about the charity and the implications of the work that they carry out. There was a new initiative this year to ‘overdo it in denim’ and the winners were The Denim King ‘Kieron Jackson’ and The Denim Queen ‘Abi Nichols’. Those who contributed manage to raise £160 to go towards this amazing charity.
What Jeans for Genes do:
The monies raised by schools and workplaces on Jeans for Genes Day fund a range of initiatives that improve the lives of children affected by a genetic disorder:
- They run an annual grant programme that is open to all UK charities and patient groups caring for children with genetic disorders.
- They develop resources for schools to make pupils more aware and empathetic of the difficult lives that children with genetic disorders lead.
- They fund the work of Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity dedicated to supporting families affected by genetic disorders.
