Jeans for genes day

On Friday 22nd September The Hall once again raised money for the 'Genes for Jeans' Charity. All the monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day provide grants for day-to-day support, equipment, nursing and patient support services, and events which bring together affected children and their families who have genetic disorders. Everyone, staff and children, wore their denim in exchange for a pound donation. In assembly the children watched a short film clip about a boy called Ashley with Treacher Collins syndrome. Ashley showed us how he gets around the daily challenges that his symptoms present and how he deals with the bullying that he has experienced as a result. He was an inspiration to us all and as one Year Six child explained, "We are so lucky. The film showed me that we are all the same on the inside!" £480 was kindly donated and has been forward to the charity.
