Jeans for Genes Day

PEME Jeans for Genes

PEME Accounts Apprentice, Hazel Bimson, has organised various activities in support of this year’s Jeans for Genes day, raising money for this fantastic charity.

Jeans for Genes Day raises money for Genetic Disorders UK and aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders. Individually, genetic disorders are rare but together they affect 1 in 25 children born in the UK – that’s more than 30,000 babies each year. Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 years and under.

On Thursday 4th October Hazel organised various activities at PEME’s Peterborough office, including a Jeans for Genes day quiz and a children’s colouring competition with a prize. The picture shows some of the winners of the colouring competition. Last but not least many of the PEME head office staff wore their jeans to work support Jeans for Genes day.

PEME has supported this charity for several years and if you are interested in looking at some of the families this wonderful charity has helped details are available on the Jeans for Genes  website.
