'YOUNG lions' at The Windsor Boys' School will be helping raise money for good causes following the setting up of the school's own Leo Club.

The club is being sponsored by Windsor Lions and the school's deputy head boy Albert Karavis has been made the first president.

The new club hopes to support the Lions by organising sport and charitable events in and around the school.

Leo clubs were first established in 1957 in Pennsylvania and now feature in 140 countries with more than 160,000 members. They have always been seen as a junior section of the adult Lions club, which rivals Rotary when it comes to fund raising for good causes.

Boys School headteacher Gavin Henderson said: "History was made this week as the first Leo’s Club was chartered in The Windsor Boys’ School "Congratulations to deputy head boy Albert Karavis who was made the first President. We hope that this club will be a feature of the charity work the school does within Windsor."

*The school is due to hold its annual speech day this Thursday (23/6) when MP Will Quince, a former pupil, will be guest of honour.

He became MP for Colchester last year beating incumbent Liberal Democrat MP Sir Bob Russell.
