Jeans for Genes Day 2020

14th September 2020 to 20th September 2020

Event Overview

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. Pupils (and staff) can pay a donation to wear denim to school - to raise awareness and money for charity. What's not to love?!

Money 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.

Why take part?

  • Tie it to the curriculum.  We have fantastic films and assemblies to bring the subject of genetics to life. Our educational resources have been developed with teachers, testing in the classroom and are national curriculum friendly.
  • Have fun.  Once the jeans are on, there’s so much more you can do. From blue cake sales to sponsored three-legged races, the more fun you have the more money you can raise.
  • Change lives.  By getting everyone to wear jeans your school could help fund projects that provide nursing care, equipment, activity weekends, online support and counselling.
