Teen pop sensation Tallia Storm supported the official Jeans for Genes charity day t-shirt launch campaign in Edinburgh on Sunday.

The 14-year-old Killearn performer was at the capital’s Harvey Nichols Champagne Bar to promote Tallia’s Tee Party to a host of young movers and shakers in the entertainment world.

Tallia has been a celebrity supporter of Jeans for Genes day since 2011 and said she was delighted to continue her role as the charity’s Scottish Ambassador.

She cajoled friends and family to sit on her hosting committee who include Devenee and Olivia Sim, Tessie Hartmann, Alanah Gray, Robbie Knight and Phoebe Shaw.

The group hosted a guestlist of cool kids, glamorous parents and a few celebrities who were treated to Afternoon Tea, a DJ set and a live performance from Tallia herself.

Jeans for Genes Day raises money for Genetic Disorders UK and aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders.

Individually, genetic disorders are rare but together they affect 1 in 25 children born in the UK - that’s more than 30,000 babies each year.

Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 years and under.

The main Jeans for Genes Day takes place on Friday September 20.
