PUPILS, their parents and staff swapped school trousers for jeans for a day in support of a charity which helps children with genetic disorders.

Orchards Primary School, in Wisbech, raised more than �170 with its Jeans for Genes Day.

Jaynie Lynch, the school’s deputy head teacher, said: “This was a cause very close to our heart as we have families at the school and staff affected.

“I’m so proud of the participation in our non-uniform day in support of Jeans for Genes. We managed to raise more than �170 which will go along way to help people and family members living with genetic disorders.”

Lucas Welfare, school captain, said: “I didn’t know that people in our community were affected by genetic disorders. I’m glad that we can do something to help and our money will go a long way.”
