Jeans for Genes DayPosted: 4th October 2019
School uniform was swapped for all things denim as a primary school supported Jeans for Genes Day.
Pupils and staff at Roydon Primary Academy raised a total of £230 for the cause by wearing jeans or something blue for the day.
The school supports the event each year to raise awareness and money to make a difference to children affected by genetic disorders.
Headteacher Michael Clark said: “By getting everyone to wear jeans and discussing this great charity in their classes, the school helped to fund projects which provide nursing care, equipment, activity weekends, online support and counselling.
“We are so thankful to our brilliant supportive school community who once again smashed our target of £150. The money raised will go towards some amazing projects and we have raised awareness through the conversations we have been having with the children.”
