Students support Animal Aid

Sweet success: Leongatha Secondary College students from left, Emily Betts, Amy Dunlop and Shannen Knight with their fantastic cup cakes.

YEAR 12 Leongatha Secondary College students Emily Betts, Amy Dunlop and Shannen Knight organised a successful fundraiser for Animal Aid.

They made and sold cupcakes and instigated a casual dress day at the college.

The motivation for organising a fundraiser for Animal Aid was a love for animals and respect for Animal Aid and what they do.

The idea for the fundraiser began simply with an English project on altruism and volunteering which expanded into a much bigger and successful event raising $520.95 thanks to the generous gold coin donations of students.

The day was organised and planned amongst the three girls who orchestrated the entire event.

Animal Aid is a rescue shelter for stray and abandoned animals. They desex, microchip, vaccinate and rehome animals. They are located in Wonthaggi and cater to a large area of Gippsland.

To start with, they made the cupcakes at Emily’s house which is located at the Leongatha Motel. Preparation of the cupcakes took more than five hours.

If you wish to enquire or donate to Animal Aid please contact them at 74A Watt Street, Wonthaggi, or phone 5672 3948 or email: sthgippyanimalaid@ymail.com
