Golfers at Abbey Hill Golf Centre donned their denim to raise funds for Genetic Disorders UK on Jeans for Genes Day last Friday.

The public pay-and-play centre donated £1 from every green fee paid throughout the day and encouraged staff and golfers to deck themselves out in denim and donate to help the charity on its annual day, and raised £57.

Gordon Forster, Abbey Hill Golf Centre General Manager, said: “Golf has a reputation of having strict old fashioned dress codes, where denim is not welcome. But here at Abbey Hill there is no such dress code and visitors are welcome to wear casual gear such as jeans in the clubhouse, Par-3 Course and Pirate Island Adventure Golf.

“Our facility is designed for everyone to enjoy both golfers and non-golfers.”

Jeans for Genes Day raises money for Genetic Disorders UK and aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders. Since it became a national appeal in 1996, Jeans For Genes has raised more than £12million to help them.
