Jeans for Genes raises money for Genetic Disorders UK and aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders.
Individually, genetic disorders are rare but together they affect 1 in 25 children born in the UK - that's more than 30,000 babies each year. Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 years and under. Genetic disorders are caused by an alteration in DNA. This may mean that either a gene or several genes are missing, repeated or in the wrong order. Altered genes can affect a child's senses, movement, ability to learn or appearance.
Jeans for Genes Day is an annual fundraising event, which will take place this year on Friday 23rd September 2016. Jeans for Genes Day provides funding for the care and support of children with genetic disorders through our grant programme.
We are proud to support this cause here at Regent’s Place, and our management team will be wearing their best denim for the day. The money donated goes to a great cause, so why not ask your colleagues to wear their jeans for the Day and make a donation.
