Jeans for Genes Day 2017

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”.
