WHEN you buy a rose for a loved one this Valentine's Day, why not help change a child's life at the same time?
A group of business studies students are calling on the public to help them to 'Spread the Love' and raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
As part of their small business and entrepreneurship module, the team, which studies at the Hatfield-based University of Hertfordshire, has organised the fundraising event.
From today (Monday) until Thursday between 9am and 4pm, get yourself down to the de Havilland campus and help change a child's life.
Team member Andrew Cahill, from Welwyn, said: "What started out as a small idea has quickly progressed into a massive event."
His teammate Michael Van Bergen is "amazed" by the support and generosity of local businesses, especially those based in the Galleria shopping centre.
Sponsors such as the Walt Disney Company, Nando's restaurant, Toni & Guy and Superdrug have donated 80 extravagant prizes for a Valentine's themed raffle, such as meals for two and hotel rooms.
A university spokeswoman said: "The final year students have all taken on various business roles, with everyone contributing to all aspects of the business in order to ensure the project is a success."
If you cannot attend the event then fear no more as there is a delivery service for roses, which cost £1 each, just check out the website.
