Jeans for Genes

Sadly, since last year we have had to say goodbye to our charity champion, Jen Atkin, as she has moved on to new challenges (and modelling assignments!).  Jen had been a real driving force in raising money for a number of worthy charities in her time with us and we are determined to carry on her good work.

To that end the staff at Technica donned their denim on Friday 22nd September and raised a worthy £87 on the day, slightly pipping last year’s amount.

Jeans for Genes Day is the annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder.

Monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations for projects that aim to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders.

It is estimated that one in 25 children is affected by a genetic disorder and therefore 30,000 babies and children are newly diagnosed in the UK each year.
