Jeans for Genes 2016

On 22nd September 2016 MTIB held its 6th annual "Jeans for Genes" charity collection. The total amount raised was £65.04. The idea behind the event is that workers across UK workplaces are encouraged to wear denim products rather than their usual business attire, and make a donation for the privilege.

The Jeans for Genes charity was set up to help children with genetic disorders. Now in its 21st year of existence, it has become a firm favourite charity day in the annual calendar. Sincere thanks to all those MTIB members of staff who made a contribution.

Case Study

Craig Davies

When Craig signed up to the Work Choice programme in August 2015 at MTIB he had not worked for 23 years. The only experience he had was helping out in his parents pub – which was not regular shifts and unpaid – it was only if the bar was unusually busy. He didn’t even have his own bank account.
