Staff at our newspaper office donned the denim to help raise cash for a charity appeal.

Our journalists and advertising staff, who work on The Star, the Doncaster Free Press, the South Yorkshire Times, and the Epworth Bells, put their jeans on to help the Jeans for Genes appeal, paying for privilege of wearing them to work.

Jeans for Genes raises money for Genetic Disorders UK and aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders.

Individually, genetic disorders are rare but together they affect 1 in 25 children born in the UK - more than 30,000 babies each year. Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 and under.
