‘Jeans for Genes’ at Farlington

On Friday, September 23 senior girls and staff took part in ‘Jeans for Genes’ day.

The event, organised by Genetic Disorders UK, raises money to give care and support for children and families who are affected by a genetic disorder. The school has supported the annual event for the last 10 years.

The girls paid a small contribution to wear jeans instead of their school uniform.

Money raised on ‘Jeans for Genes’ day supports very small charities, helps them raise awareness and provides vital services for families living with rare conditions.

This year Farlington is hoping to exceed last year’s fundraising total of £348.

Claudine Maude, Farlington’s Charities Co-ordinator, said: “The girls always enjoy wearing jeans to school and supporting this worthwhile charity.

“At Farlington, we feel it is important that students are encouraged to work with charities and to do something for the wider community.”
