A few weeks ago, County had two charity days: Jeans for Gene Day and MacMillan Coffee Morning. The two separate events were a huge success and we can’t wait for next year to do them again.
Jeans for Genes is a charity that help to raise money for children with rare genetic disorders. It was the charity’s 20th birthday on the 19th of September 2014. So far, they have raised over £40 million for thousands of children affected by genetic disorders. They provide vital support and equipment; also offering children the opportunity to meet others affected by the same condition. This helps the children feel like they are not alone.
On 19th September 2015 staff at The County Group wore their jeans to work and donated £1. We raised £110 which will go towards funding and supporting the charity. Go to www.jeansforgenesday.org to find out more about the incredible work they do, when the next Jeans for Gene day is and how you will be able to help as well.
MacMillan offer support to cancer patients and their families. They offer help and advice in a number of areas including money worries and employment. They are also there for patients and their families who simply need someone to talk to. The charity hold a coffee morning and thousands of people take part. People baked cakes which they sell to help raise funds for the charity. These are the biggest coffee mornings in the country.
The County Group had our very own coffee morning which had some amazing cakes! Our coffee morning raised over £455. This will carry on supporting the work that the charity does. If you want to find out more about the charity, when the next coffee morning is, and how you would like to donate & help, go to www.macmillan.co.uk.
