Jeans for Genes Day 2023
The South View Federation will be taking part in this year’s Jeans for Genes Day on Friday 22nd September.
Jeans for Genes Day raises money for Genetic Disorders UK - the charity that aims to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders. Funds raised provide vital care and support for thousands of children with genetic disorders.
Genetic disorders affect 1 in 25 children born in the UK – that’s more than 30,000 babies born each year. Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 and under.
Taking part in Jeans for Genes Day means we could all make a real difference to affected children’s lives by helping fund the care and support they really need. In order to raise money, the children and staff are invited to wear their jeans to school on Friday 22nd September to help Jeans for Genes Day reach its target of £2.5million. It doesn’t have to just be jeans - it could be a jean shirt, skirt, dress or even a onesie if you can get one! We’d just like everyone to take part so please send your child into school on Friday wearing their jeans and with a 50p donation.
