A group of sixth form students have raised an amazing £1,086.74 for Jeans4Genes.

Pupils at Cromwell Community College held a non-uniform day where children could bring in a donation of £1.

The money raised will go towards Genetic Disorders UK and various other UK charities with the aim of helping to improve the quality of life for those with a genetic disorder and the people who closeley surround them.

Lou Allen, head of health and social care at Cromwell, said: “This charity will benefit greatly from the generosity of pupils and staff which can go towards helping all of the children affected by rare genetic disorders.

“1 in 25 children are affected in the UK, that’s more than 30,000 babies a year.

!This money will go to enhancing the quality of their lives, through aiding with multi-sensory wonderlands, providing respite care for families and enabling children to be more active as specialist facilities and equipment can be purchased for their homes.

“It is a real privilege to be able to help such a worthy cause and Cromwell Community College has ensured many more children can lead happier lives.”
