Pupils and staff at Lockers Park School swapped their usual clothes for their favourite jeans as they joined in a national initiative organised by the Jeans for Genes charity on Friday 20 September. They were asked for a donation of £1 each to wear their jeans on the day.
Jeans for Genes is a wonderful charity. Half a million children in the UK face the daily challenges of a genetic disorder. By pulling on a pair of jeans, the initiative aims to fund the vital care and support services that can help transform their lives.
Lockers Park Headmaster, Christopher Wilson comments: ‘Jeans for Genes Day is a great way to bring the whole school together and raise awareness and money for children with genetic disorders. It was pleasing to see all everyone really get behind the campaign with a special assembly, and we hope to raise over £200 for this worthwhile cause.’
