Pupils from King’s Hall School wore their finest jeans recently in support of the nationwide Jeans for Genes campaign.
Jeans for Genes is an annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder.
Money raised on the day helps to fund the work of the charity and provides grants to organisations that transform the lives of children living with such disorders.
This year, King’s Hall was pleased to support the initiative, with pupils donating £2 in exchange for a fun-packed day of denim fun. Year 6 pupil Grace, who raised the campaign at a school Pupil Council meeting last year, helped to organise the event alongside Pupil Council Co-ordinator, Karen Foster. Karen said: “By getting everyone to dress down, we have been able to help fund vital projects including nursing care, activity weekends, and online support and counselling services.”
The school are now delighted to announce that through the generosity of staff and pupils, a total of £353.51 has been raised for the deserving charity.
