What an amazing person you are Lachlan Ross!
Last year Lachlan Ross set out on a mission to hold a fundraiser to help two organisations that he cares about greatly - HeartKids-VIC and ANZ Fontan Registry.
Lachlan is a heart teen, he is 17 and is completing Year 12 at Cobram Anglican Grammar, whilst also remaining involved with his local community.
Lachlan in association with the Katamatite Lions Club organised a toy drive over Christmas and received an abundance of new toys that he donated to HeartKids to provide to children, siblings, young people and their families impacted by CHD. Lachlan also organised a gold-coin casual clothes day at his local high school and raised an incredible $1,183.40!
Due to COVID restrictions, Lachlan and his family had been unable to present the success of their Christmas toy drive and his school fundraising efforts to HeartKids and The Fontan Registry. However last week Lachlan was able to do so and his clinical care team at The Royal Children’s Hospital and The Fontan Registry staff were thrilled to accept his donation to The Fontan Registry and HeartKids.
We said a massive thank you to Lachlan, his family and his local community for their amazing effort
