Schoolboy, 8, saves up pocket money to buy Valentine rose for EVERY girl in his class
A selfless eight-year-old has saved up his pocket money to buy a rose for all 68 of his female classmates so they don’t feel left out this Valentine’s.
Callum Drew will present the beautiful silk blooms, which last forever, tomorrow to all the girls in Year Four at Lacey Gardens School in Louth, Lincolnshire.
The young Romeo started the tradition four years ago to put a smile on their faces, reports Lincolnshire Live .
However, Callum’s biggest gift is being reserved for his girlfriend, who he says is fine with him treating all the other lucky ladies despite it being their first Valentine’s Day together.
The youngster said: “I just wanted to get some flowers for the girls in year four as I don’t want them to feel let down on Valentine’s Day.
“I have got a girlfriend. I haven’t told her yet but she does know about it because I do it every year.
“She is happy about it.”
Callum saved up the money by working at his grandma’s flower shop. When she sadly died last year, he started washing cars to earn the cash and continue the tradition.
He added: “I will go around every class and give them their present.
“I have done it before for the last four years. The girls jump on me and scream because they are happy.”
Callum’s mum, Stacey says she is incredibly proud of her son for his consideration for other people’s feelings.
She said: “He’s been doing it for four years, he started out with just his class but now he gives roses to every girl in his year – he says that no girl should be left out.
“He’s also saved up and got a present for his girlfriend.
“This year is a bit different. He normally helped his grandmother in the flower shop to earn the money but she died last year – this year he has decided to wash cars.
“He has washed about ten cars and has a couple more booked in. He was outside from 9.30am until 4.30pm and even then I had to drag him in as it was getting dark.
“I’m really proud of him. He hates the attention from the girls. Last year when he gave them the roses they all started screaming and piled on him.”
