Children and staff at Winchcombe Farm Day Nursery in Upper Tysoe made a donation to don their denim to nursery to raise money for Jeans for Genes Day.

Children at the Shenington Road based nursery also jazzed up some jeans by customising a pair using glitter, glue, pompoms and paint during the fun on Friday, September 18.

Jeans for Genes Day raises money for Genetic Disorders UK, the charity that aims to change to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders.

Genetic disorders affect 1 in 25 children in the UK – that’s more than 30,000 babies born each year. Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 and under.

Jeans for Genes Day invites everyone across the UK, from nurseries and schools to companies, to wear their jeans for the day in return for a donation. Funds raised provide vital care and support for thousands of children with genetic disorders.

Winchcombe Farm Day Nursery manager Rachel Giorgio said: “Staff and children at nursery take part in Jeans for Genes Day every year and we always plan lots of fun activities for the children to enjoy such as jazzing up jeans or icing demin clad gingerbread men.

“We are delighted to be able to help raise funds towards this worthy cause as Jeans for Genes Day supports very small charities get their voices heard and helps them to provide vital services for families living with rare conditions.”
