DONCASTER College students and staff donned denim for the day as part of a fundraiser to support the Genetic Disorders UK charity.

They were asked to discard their normal attire and wear denim in return for a £1 donation as part of Jeans for Genes Day on Friday.

Olympic Bronze medalist Sarah Stevenson, 29, of Bentley, was also on hand to show off her jeans too.

After donning their straight cuts, boot cuts, jeggings and skinnys, a substantial sum of nearly £350 was raised.

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

Genetic disorders affect one 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 years and under.
