Jeans for Rett Charity Day - Friday 16th of July
Students from Fulston Manor School stepped up again and took part in a charity event in aid of Reverse Rett through ‘Jeans for Rett” on Friday 16th July. Rett Syndrome is a devastating neurological disorder which affects approximately 1 in 10,000 girls. It strikes at approximately 18-24 months of age, taking the child’s ability to walk, talk or use their hands. Over time, further symptoms develop including epilepsy, scoliosis, digestive difficulties, heart conditions and breathing problems. All children and staff were invited to wear a pair of jeans, combined with their usual uniform for a donation towards the cause.
A spokesperson from Reverse Rett, Joanna Snyder, said “A supreme effort with such hard work – we are so grateful! Thanks so much and please pass on all our thanks to the leadership team and students and staff of Fulston who are supporting your incentive and Reverse Rett. Incredibly heart-warming and inspiring”. A fantastic £211.75 was raised on the day. To find our more about this syndrome please look here https://www.reverserett.org.uk
