Jeans for Genes Day - Friday 23rd September

Dear Parents and Carers,

St Mary’s Cockerton will be taking part in this year’s Jeans for Genes Day on Friday 23rd September.

1 in 25 children has a genetic disorder that makes their life very difficult. That’s one in every class. Simply by wearing our jeans and donating, we will change the lives of these children.

All children and staff are invited to wear their jeans on Friday 23rd September to help Jeans for Genes Day reach its target of £2million.  This year we’re ‘over doing it in denim’ so wear as much as you can; jeans, shirts, caps and headbands! We’d like everyone to take part so please send your child into school on the day wearing their denim and with a £1 donation.

 Jeans for Genes Day have a series of powerful 5 minute films to explain how your child’s donation will make a difference. Each film provides a compelling and personal insight, introducing some amazing children living with genetic disorders, sharing first-hand what life is like with their condition. Please visit for more information and to view these films.

If you’d like to find out more about how our support will help, please visit their website at

Thank you,

Mrs Carter
