Children and staff at Belmont Primary wore their favourite jeans on Jeans for Genes Day 2017 which took place on Friday 22 September. All of the pupils and staff made a donation of £1 each to wear their jeans on the day.
Of the day Headteacher Mark Fletcher said “We all inherit a range of talents, skills and personality traits through our genes – they’re part of what makes us who we are. But half a million children in the UK face the daily challenges of a genetic disorder. By pulling on a pair of jeans, we are able to help fund the vital care and support services that transform their lives”.
