Jeans for nystagmus genes

With as many as 336 genes potentially implicated in the onset of congenital nystagmus, the Nystagmus Network thought it was about time we got involved with Jeans for Genes Day.

In 2018 we made a grant application to Genetic Disorders UK, who run the Jeans for Genes Day fundraising campaign and we're delighted to announce that we are one of 22 charities to be awarded a grant in 2019.

Our Jeans for Genes grant will go towards our exciting new project, the Nystagmus Network Big Adventure. We'll be telling you more about that in the coming months.

But first, we need your help to make Jeans for Genes Day 2019 a big success.

So please join charity trustees and staff and don your double denim on September 18th!

It will take place in Southampton on Saturday 12 October, 10am to 2pm. Spaces are limited, so if you need help to access SEN support for a child, please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

We will be announcing more dates and locations soon.
