Daffodil Day is here

Gloucester is encouraged to show support for Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day.

Today, (August 25) is Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day – an opportunity for people across the region to contribute to a brighter, cancer-free future.

Across NSW, more than 650 sites will be in full swing including Gloucester, staffed by more than 4,500 volunteers who will be encouraging people to buy merchandise to show support for someone they know – including 55 sites in the Coffs Coast and Lower Mid North Coast.

This year marks 31 years of Daffodil Day in Australia. As one of the largest national fundraising events in the Southern Hemisphere, this year Cancer Council hopes to raise $2.1m in NSW.

“By supporting Daffodil Day, locals contribute to life-saving cancer research, prevention programs, support services and advocacy programs,” Abby Wallace from Cancer Council NSW said.

“Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer, with 1 in 2 Australians predicted to be diagnosed by age 85. We encourage everyone to make a difference by supporting Cancer Council today. Get out there, wear a pin, and give some fresh daffodils to someone you know,” Ms Wallace said.
