Students from The Cathedral School Leo Club have been busy selling roses and love song serenades in the lead up to Valentine’s Day on 14 February in order to raise much needed funds for the Heart Foundation.
The Cathedral School Leo Advisor, Mrs Toni Lanphier said raising money for the Heart Foundation was a fitting cause for Valentine’s Day.
“Hearts are made for more than loving and it’s important to recognise this. Unfortunately heart disease remains the single biggest killer of men and women in Australia and the Heart Foundation works hard to improve heart disease prevention and care” Mrs Lanphier said.
Year 12 student and Leo Club President, Bona Obiri-Yeboah said the interest amongst the students for roses and love song serenades had been positive.
“Everyone is really getting on board to raise money for the Heart Foundation and they can’t wait to see who will be dressed up as Cupid to sing all the love songs and delivering roses on Tuesday” Bona added.
The Leo Club at The Cathedral School provides an opportunity for students to actively participate in community service activities, as a youth group sponsored by Lions Clubs International.
LEO stands for Leadership, Experience and Opportunity – and hundreds of Leo members have reaped these benefits for over 20 years since the club was formed at The Cathedral School.
