Jeans for Genes in Wiveliscombe
11:10am Wednesday 17th October 2012 in Taunton
WIVELISCOMBE Primary School took part in Jeans for Genes Day and raised over £185.
A beautifully simple idea, the day invited young and old to leave their suits and uniforms at home, and wear their jeans to work or school in return for a donation.
Jeans for Genes Day provides vital funding for the care and support of children with genetic disorders.
This year, 23 charities will benefit from funds raised on the day.
Celebrity supporters of Jeans for Genes Day this year included Amanda Holden, Katie Price, Coleen Rooney, Lauren Pope, Jessica and Carol Wright, Caggie Dunlop and Jade Thompson.
