Staff at Teachers Building Society support Jeans for Genes Day

Oct 04, 2011

Staff at Wimborne-based Teachers Building Society will be donning their denims this Friday in support of Jeans for Genes Day.

The Teachers team holds regular ‘Mufti Days’ raising over £1000 each year for a variety of local and national charities and each member of staff will make a donation to wear their jeans on 7th October.

Jeans for Genes is the national charity raising money for children with genetic disorders, to fund the care they need now and the research that could change their futures.

James Bawa, chief executive of Teachers Building Society, says “We’ve been holding a fundraising Mufti Day at least once a month for many years and are very happy to support Jeans for Genes Day too. These events are such a simple way for businesses to raise money for good causes and the whole team here gets involved and can also nominate charities of their choice for our monthly fundraisers.”

Genetic disorders affect 1 in 25 children born in the UK – that’s more than 30,000 babies born each year.

Jeans for Genes Day invites companies and schools across the UK to wear their jeans to work or school in return for a donation.  This year is the charity’s 16th anniversary and to date it has raised £36 million to help change the lives of children with genetic disorders.
