Students have a heart for charity

March 26, 2021

Carinity Education Gladstone students are supporting Claude “The Mower Man” Harvey and his fundraising for child protection organisation Bravehearts.

Claude visited the school on March 24, one of the first stops on his 37-day fundraising journey from Sunshine Coast to Townsville.

Students presented a $300 donation to Claude on behalf of the school.

Over the past 15 years Claude, 76, has raised $1.6 million for Bravehearts, which works to prevent child sexual assault, by pushing his lawnmower around Australia.

Carinity Education Gladstone Principal Jane Greenland says Carinity is proud to support Bravehearts, given both organisations support at-risk youth.

“Our school community is happy and proud to support Bravehearts as that organisation, like Carinity, strives to give at-risk youth a better future,” Jane says.

On his current fundraising journey Claude will also visit towns such as Calliope, Biloela, Emerald, Longreach, Mt Isa, Winton, Cloncurry, Charters Towers and Townsville.
