Staff at our Oldham office left their suits at home last Friday and instead wore jeans as they took part in Jeans for Genes Day 2013.
We each donated £2 in return for wearing jeans on the day.
Jeans for Genes Day raises money for Genetic Disorders UK, the charity that aims to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders.
Genetic disorders affect 1 in 25 children in the UK; that’s more than 30,000 babies born each year, the associated health problems being that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 and under.
Jeans for Genes Day invites everyone across the UK from nurseries and schools to companies to wear their jeans for the day in return for a donation. The funds raised provide vital care and support for thousands of children with genetic disorders.
