Pupils Wear Denim for Jeans for Genes Campaign
On Friday 21st September, our Year 6 pupils wore their finest Levis (other denim is obviously available!!) in support of the nationwide Jeans for Genes campaign.
Jeans for Genes is an annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder.
Monies raised on this day help to fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations that transform the lives of over 500,00 UK children living with such disorders.
This year, King’s Hall was pleased to help support this initiative, with pupils donating £2 in exchange for a fun-packed day of denim fun.
The idea was first introduced by Year 6 pupil Grace, who suggested the campaign to friends and peers at a Pupil Council meeting earlier last year.
Pupil Council Co-ordinator, Karen Foster, was so impressed by the suggestion, that she asked Grace to move forward with the campaign this year. She was delighted with the total raised: £353.51!
By getting everyone to dress down, we have been able to help fund vital projects including nursing care, activity weekends, online support and counselling services.
