Staff at Ellis Jones Solicitors threw on their denim when they took part in the annual ‘Jeans for Genes’ appeal.

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

In return, donations were collected which will go towards funding pioneering research and vital support for children affected by genetic disorders.

Among the people taking part was Nigel Smith, Managing Partner, who said that Ellis Jones’ offices in Bournemouth, Canford Cliffs, Ringwood and Swanage had taken part.

“It’s a chance to raise money for a very worthy cause,” he added.

2016 marks the 21st annual Jeans for Genes Day. Over the past two decades the mass participation fundraising event has raised over £40 million to help children with genetic disorders.

Note to journalists: Ellis Jones is one of the largest law firms in Dorset and West Hampshire with more than 140 staff including 12 partners. It has offices in Bournemouth, Canford Cliffs (Poole), Ringwood, Swanage and London offering a wide range of services to individuals and businesses.
