Raising funds for research into genetic disease
Staff at a local hospital have participated in Jeans for Genes Day on August 15.
The day is held by the Children's Medical Institute to raise funds for research into genetic disease and disorders in children.
Organisations whose dress codes might normally not allow for jeans were encouraged to allow staff members to wear their favourite pair of jeans to work for a gold coin donation.
Staff at Woy Woy's Brisbane Water Private Hospital raised $300 through their Jeans for Genes Day.
Hospital chief executive Ms Kathy Beverly said staff were "tremendously supportive of the idea and had a bit of fun supporting this wonderful cause".
