Overdo it in denim by holding your Jeans for Genes Day this September to help families affected by genetic blindness & sight loss.

How? It’s Simple!

Leave your suit or uniform at home and wear jeans into work or school on Jeans for Genes Day 2016 – Friday 22nd September. Do you dare go double denim?  Invite your colleagues or classmates to do the same, in return for a small donation to Fighting Blindness.

Order your free fundraising kit by completing this online form.  We have coin boxes, stickers, balloons & posters available to add a little denim sparkle to your event. You can also download some DIY:

Add some ‘oomph’ to your Jeans for Genes Day by holding a Coffee Morning, Bake Sale or mini raffle to give your fundraising a boost.

One of the Fighting Blindness (Jeans) team can also pop out to you on the day to take your ‘Team Jeans for Genes’ photo for our Jeans for Genes wall of fame. We’ll also thank your team for supporting & explain how your important funds will be spent.
