Staff at Corby Council ditched the office dress for denim as they supported Jeans for Genes day for the 20th year.

Jeans for Genes Day is a national UK campaign which raises money to change the world for children with all types of genetic disorders, not just those with chronic granulomatus disorder.

Millions of people across the UK make a donation to wear their jeans to work or school.

The money they raise helps to fund valuable care and support that children and families need today.

Corby Council has been taking part in the dress down day for 20 years, raising thousands of pounds through their efforts for the cause.

And this year was no different as staff turned up for work in denim instead of their usual office attire today (Friday).

Corby Council leader Tom Beattie said: “Our staff at Corby Borough Council hold various fundraising activities throughout the year including dress down days and cake sales.

“We are very proud of their continued support of Jeans for Genes day and their generosity which has seen the authority raise thousands over the years for the charity.”
