STAFF at Ellis Jones Solicitors donned their denim outfits to support the annual Jeans for Genes appeal.

The Ringwood law firm joined companies and organisations across the UK in encouraging staff to wear their jeans for the day.

Donations were collected for Genetic Disorders UK which funds pioneering research and vital support for the 500,000 children affected by genetic disorders in the UK.

Nigel Smith, the managing partner at Ellis Jones Solicitors said: “We’re proud to support this great cause which succeeds in raising millions of pounds every year.”

The law firm’s offices in Bournemouth, Canford Cliffs, Christchurch, and Swanage also took park.

2018 marks the 23rd annual Jeans for Genes Day.

Since its launch in the mid-1990’s the fundraising event has raised more than £40 million to help children with genetic disorders.
