Spread this story

An eight-year-old boy has worked relentlessly so that he could save up enough money to buy his class girls flowers this valentine.

Callum Drew, for the past four year has presented a rose each to his 68 female classmates every Valentine’s Day celebration.

Callum who is in Year Four at Lacey Gardens School in Louth, Lincolnshire, reveals that though he has a girlfriend, but he liked giving other girls roses so they wouldn’t feel left out.

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.”
