Jeans for Genes Day at Kidderminster Nursery
Children at a Kidderminster nursery enjoyed dressing up in denim for this year’s Jeans for Genes Day on Friday 21st September. Helping to raise money and awareness for the 500,000 children in the UK today living with Genetic Disorders, the nursery encouraged everyone to wear as much denim as they possibly could. Little Trinity Nursery Manager, Gaynor Carter said: “We raise funds for various charities throughout the year, and this year decided to join in with Holy Trinity School students to support Jeans for Genes Day as our first fundraising day of the new academic year as it is a wonderful organisation which funds a range of projects including providing nursing care, equipment, counselling, online support and activity weekends for children affected by genes disorders, so we know the money we raised today will be put to good use.” Jeans for Genes Day is the annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity which supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder. Money raised will help to fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations for projects that aim to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders. All nursery children and staff participated by covering themselves in as much denim as they could and added their fundraising pot of £80.85 to that of Holy Trinity School’s £586.62 to make a grand total of £667.47!
