E.ON’s Energy Services employees wear badge of honour in support of Jeans for Genes

In the run up to Jeans for Genes day on October 5th, staff at E.ON UK's Energy Services business have made a donation of £2,550 to the children's charity by raising funds through a safety hotline.
All calls logged on the ‘near hit' hotline, where staff report potential safety incidents, now mean that a £1 donation is made to the charity.

Richard Hale, from E.ON' s Energy Services, said: "Our staff have wholeheartedly supported Jeans for Genes over the past few years.

"We hope that, by donating £1 for every near hit reported, it'll not only encourage people to think seriously about safety, it'll also help to fund research into genetic disorders affecting children, such as cystic fibrosis, haemophilia and sickle cell.

"Our field staff can't usually participate in wearing jeans as they have to wear specific safety gear so, this year, the charity has designed a special patch that our staff can stick to their uniforms.

"We're really thrilled that we're able to support a charity which makes such a big difference to the lives of seriously ill children, and we're keen to continue our support and see it grow from strength to strength in the years to come."

Rosalind Freeborn, from Jeans for Genes, said: "We're delighted that E.ON's Energy Services has chosen to support the charity in such an imaginative and effective way, and we expect that this scheme will help us to raise over £3 million this year.

"The funds will go towards research into the causes and treatments of inherited conditions, and will offer support to families with children for whom life can be very challenging. So, thank you to everyone at E.ON, and remember to ‘get denimised' on Friday 5th October!"
