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.
