School dons denim for jeans for genes day
STAFF and pupils at a Royston school donned their denims last week for Jeans for Genes day.
Roysia School took part in the annual event, which raises money for the charity Genetic Disorders UK and its work helping children with genetic disorders.
Jan Morley, head of year eight and leader of science at the school, said: “We’ve had various activities going on all week, including pin the tail on the llama. The children love getting involved in fundraising events.
“Then on Friday the children and staff could all make a donation to wear their jeans to school.”
The school are expecting to raise more than �200. Staff at Curwens Solicitors in the High Street also left their suits at home for the day in aid of the charity.

Senior partner Peter Poole said: “As lawyers, we always wear our business suits to work and so wearing jeans for the day is something very unusual but we have supported Jeans for Genes every year since it started – it’s one of our favourite charities. Our Partners match the funds raised by staff and we hope to raise even more money this year for such a great cause.”
