Jeans for Genes Day

Jeans for Genes Day events are being held across the Ashbourne Day Nurseries group this Friday, 21st September, including Leavesden and Wing.

Jeans for Genes Day raises funds to support children affected by genetic disorders.

There are around 6,000 genetic disorders.

It is estimated that one in 25 children is affected by a genetic disorder. 30,000 babies and children are newly diagnosed in the UK each year.

Some genetic disorders are apparent at birth while others are diagnosed at different stages throughout childhood, and sometimes into adolescence.
