Lakes Grammar Senior Student Representative Council (SRC) have thrown their support behind a fundraising effort to support victims affected by Cyclone Winston. The islands of Fiji were left devastated when Cyclone Winston hit in February.
Our SRC body is always looking for ways to lead our school community in supporting worthy causes and chose Anglican Board of Mission (ABM), who are assisting with shelter and emergency aid in Fiji, as the recipient for their latest fundraising efforts.
The fundraising activities involved a whole school mufti day on Tuesday, 15 March followed by a BBQ lunch for Junior School students on the day of their cross country event. A drive for donation items and clothing was also undertaken with a car load of goods making its way to Sydney to support the Pure Fiji #TC Winston Relief.
“ABM set a target to raise $10,000 to support the victims of the recent cyclone, and as members of the Anglican community, we wanted to contribute what we could to this very worthy cause” said Peggie Pantsos, School Vice-Captain and Senior SRC representative.
The Lakes Grammar fundraising activities over the two days raised $2,182.00 which is a great outcome and one of which our SRC should be proud.
