Leos support Legacy
Members of Drouin Secondary College’s Leos Club were out and about in the town’s shopping centre last week lending support to the annual Legacy Week badges sales.
It was the third year the club has assisted Central Gippsland Legacy’s fund-raising.
As well as badges that ranged in price from $2 to $20 they sold wrist bands, pens and soft toy bears dressed in uniforms of a number of branches of the armed services.
Legatee Graeme Watts of Drouin said the support of the club was greatly appreciated during the annual appeal that raises funds for families of incapacitated and deceased veterans.
He said that money raised locally was spent locally and that the Central Gippsland branch assisted more than 200 people including helping widows and children of veterans with their education and personal development.
Leos clubs comprised of young people and are affiliates of Lions International clubs.
The Drouin secondary college club was formed about five years ago and conducts several community service programs each year.
Ready to hit the streets of Drouin to sell badges and other items to raise funds for Legacy last week were Drouin secondary college Leos Club members, from left, Gemma Burke, Ruby Kelly, Xavier Swetman, Halle Braybon, Chloe Kirkman and Caitlyn Warriner.
