Jeans for Genes Week

It’s Jeans for Genes Week, a chance to support the charity Genetic Disorders UK, who help children and families affected by a genetic disorder.

There are around 6,000 genetic disorders.

It is estimated that one in 25 children is affected by a genetic disorder. 30,000 babies and children are newly diagnosed in the UK each year.

Some genetic disorders are apparent at birth while others are diagnosed at different stages throughout childhood, and sometimes into adolescence.

Thames Valley Tech Awards Finalist

We’re delighted to have been selected as a finalist in the Thames Valley Tech Awards!

The Laser team has been recognised in the Sustainable Technology category (sponsored by Ernst & Young) for our work in the eLearning sector.

TV presenter Vernon Kay will host the virtual awards on September 24th.

Commenting on the quality of this year’s finalists, Peter Laurie, head of client relations for The Business Magazine, said:

“What came through most clearly to the judges from their meetings with the contenders is just how buoyant the Thames Valley tech sector is despite the uncertainty caused by Covid-19. The judges were impressed by all the entries.”
