This year’s Jeans for Genes Day takes place on Friday 19th and support to children with genetic disorders
1 in 25 children in the UK are born with a genetic disorder – that amounts to more than 30,000 babies born each year.
This year’s Jeans for Genes Day takes place on Friday 19th and support to children with genetic disorders.
The day invites people to leave their suits and uniforms at home and wear their jeans to work or school in return for a donation which will help change the lives of children across the UK.
Jeans for Genes Day provides vital funding for the care and support of children with genetic disorders. In 2014, 25 charities will benefit from the funds raised on Jeans for Genes Day.
Celebrity supporters this year include, Coronation Street’s Kym Marsh and Catherine Tyldesley, reality television stars Louise Thompson, Sam Faiers, Fearne McCann and Caggie Dunlop, Olympic gymnast Louis Smith, Footballer Fabrice Muamba, actress Gemma Merna, dancer Danielle Peazer, fashion designer Coleen Rooney and Katie Price.
