WEB GSAL Gene Hero award 587

The Grammar School at Leeds (GSAL) has earned a special accolade for its impressive fundraising efforts in support of the charity Jeans for Genes Day.

Senior School has taken part in Jeans for Genes Day a total of 11 times, raising an impressive £16,800.

The charity has recognised the achievement by presenting the school with the Gene Hero Award, a new award acknowledging outstanding fundraising efforts. Just eight schools across the UK have earned the accolade.

Caroline Harding, chief executive of Jeans for Genes Day, said: “School fundraising is vital to our charity. I want to thank each and every child at GSAL who took part in Jeans for Genes Day over the past 20 years. They have made it possible for us to provide extraordinary help and support to so many children and families.”

Jeans for Genes Day raises money for the charity Genetic Disorders UK, which aims to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders by using funds raised to provide vital care and support.

Julie Ringrose, charities coordinator at GSAL, said: “The Jeans for Genes charity is one that is close to our hearts, and we’re thrilled to have the generosity of our pupils recognised. We’re looking forward to celebrating the twentieth anniversary of Jeans for Genes Day this year.”
