In the light of the death of Her Majesty the Queen, we will be joining the National Day of Mourning for her funeral on Mon 19th September and will respectfully continue our vital work and annual event, from Tuesday 20th– 25th September.
The Queen meant many things to many people but speaking as a charity, it is her dedication to duty and service to others which we believe is a large part of her legacy.
This dedication and her exemplary support of charity work is legendary, helping raise much needed funds and awareness. In her own words “When life seems hard, the courageous do not lie down and accept defeat; instead, they are all the more determined to struggle for a better future”.
Our own duty at Jeans for Genes is to support the genetic condition community. Our public campaign talking about genetic conditions helps increase understanding, empathy and respect. Our work unites schools, workplaces and individuals to ensure that essential funding is delivered to small, vital community groups across the UK – all providing desperately needed services.
We can’t do this without you and would like to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who has been in touch to show support: with details of their own fundraising events, requested information or who registered for the first time.
While we appreciate that these are difficult and emotional times, your support is needed more than ever before.
