Title:Donning Denim at Doncaster College raises £885

Students and Staff from Doncaster College took part in Jeans for Genes Day.

They were asked to discard their normal attire and wear denim for the day in return for a £1 donation to the Genetic Disorders UK charity.

After donning their straight leg, flared retros, boot cuts, jeggings, skinnys, dungarees and 'Daisy Dukes', a substantial sum of nearly £885 was raised.

A particular mention must go to all the Students and Staff from the Childcare courses in the Academy of Wellbeing at the College who raised £210.

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 one 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.

Jeans for Genes Day is an annual fundraising event and will take place on Friday 4th October next year.
