This year we are celebrating 20 years of Jeans for Genes Day, and to mark the occasion we are honouring some of our longest-standing and top donors of the past 20 years!
Six schools in the UK have been awarded Denim Donor status to honour their remarkable fundraising efforts:
Calday Grange Grammar School in Wirral who have donated over £25,500
The Grammar School at Leeds who have donated over £16,800
Essendene Lodge School who have taken part for an incredible 19 years
Cairnshill Primary School in Belfast who have donated over £8,000
Imberhorne School in East Grinstead who have donated over £19,900
Ravensbourne & Havering School who have taken part for the past 19 years
Each school will be offered a guest assembly speaker to give a special praise of thanks to the children and staff, and explain just how fundamental their involvement has been to us. A special Gene Hero certificate has also been awarded to each school to celebrate their incredible support and continual dedication to Jeans for Genes Day over the last 20 years. The support of schools like these has been invaluable to our fundraising efforts, helping us to raise over £40 million since the first Jeans for Genes Day.
We are so grateful to each and every one of you who has supported Jeans for Genes Day over the last 20 years, but we still need your help to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders in the UK. So sign up today and do something extraordinary in jeans on Friday 18th September to celebrate 20 years of Jeans for Genes Day!
