ArcelorMittal Orbit will be collaborating with Jeans for Genes day between September 21-23 to raise funds for children and families with genetic disorders.

Hundreds of supporters of Jeans for Genes will come together to ride the world’s longest and tallest tunnel slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbit, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

£2 from each ticket sold to Jeans for Genes supporters will go towards the important cause.

It is anticipated that people from all over the UK will show up at the iconic east London attraction donning denim attire.

The campaign director for Jeans for Genes, Laura Pattison, said: “When the opportunity came to team up with ArcelorMittal Orbit for this collaboration we were really excited to plan something fun for the public in vibrant city which helps to support children and families with genetic disorders.”

Those who wish to support children living with these conditions can quote the code ORBITJ4G when purchasing a ticket which will ensure that £2 from each Skyline View or the Slide tickets, or £8 from each family ticket sold for the 21- 23 September will go to Jeans for Genes.
