Leo is back! And for the month of February Leo will be serenading you with some of the classic love songs, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Leo was inspired to dedicate this month’s donations to a vital cause, one that disproportionately affects the local area.
He recalls late last year reading the unsettling statistic that Beaudesert and Logan ranked equal third in Australia for deaths related to Heart Disease, and the Heart Foundation was urging the Government to improve support and awareness.
With this in mind, Leo will be raising vital funds for the Heart Foundation and is encouraging you to take part in the trivia and donate, regardless of the amount.
By now you should know the rules:
- Make a donation to Heart Foundation
- Go to www.parkridgenews.com.au and search for ‘Leo in Lockdown’
- Find the Valentine Quiz and have a listen to the tunes played on Leo’s piano
- have a go at putting the titles in the order he plays them
- submit your answers to Leo - firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are small prizes to be won for those who score well, but the real benefit from competing is the social connection according to Leo.
“This whole trivia thing started to make sure people were able to keep in touch, engage in some friendly competition and have some fun during what was and is a very difficult time for people” Leo said.
“Since beginning and getting the platform Paul has given us with Park Ridge News it has been fantastic to reach a larger audience and get people appreciating the good things everyday people are doing in the community, however small”.
Whilst Leo has received a great response from the community and the organisations he has chosen to fundraise for, including for causes such as homelessness, the bushfires, and mental health, he intends to keep this as a side project to enjoy putting together every few months.
“I am of course a retiree, and although I appreciate some of the organisations wanting to get me on more regularly, I am happy to keep this as an enjoyable project along with my wife” Leo said.
Leo and his wife Jill also put together the occasional morning tea with their friends and normally gather around the piano and play a few songs for good measure.
All of which helps in the fundraising efforts.
“Admittedly, whilst the reader numbers are doing well and people seem to love what we’re doing, not as much are following through after the articles and then having a go at answering the trivia questions” Leo said.
“So I’d really encourage your readers, have a go! Call up a friend if you’re not having any luck answering them. It’s not cheating, the whole point is to bring some fun into the mix, and hey if you win a prize, that’s great too!”
