Friday, October 7 is Jeans for Genes Day when staff in Church of Ireland House, Belfast, are asked to dress in denim for the day.
The annual Jeans for Genes campaign is urging everyone to make an impression on the lives of children with genetic disorders simply by wearing their jeans and donating £2.00.
Genetic disorders affect over 30,000 children born each year in the UK – that’s one in every 25.
Jeans for Genes provides funding for the care and support of children with genetic disorders. They also help fund research into genetics and the development of effective treatments and cures.
Wearing a pair of jeans or just making a donation will be helping change the lives of children with genetic disorders.
