Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS -

CANCER Coun­cil Queens­land is call­ing on Sun­shine Coast lo­cals to help out this Daf­fodil Day on Au­gust 25, by sell­ing fresh daffodils and mer­chan­dise for the cause.

Daf­fodil Day is one of the most iconic fundrais­ing events in Queens­land – with thou­sands com­ing to­gether to turn the town yel­low and grow hope for a cancer free fu­ture.

Cancer Coun­cil Queens­land CEO Chris McMil­lan en­cour­aged lo­cals to sup­port Daf­fodil Day to make a dif­fer­ence in the fight against cancer.

“Daf­fodil Day is ded­i­cated to raising funds and sav­ing lives, but we des­per­ately need your help to make it a suc­cess,” Ms McMil­lan said.

“Whether you can vol­un­teer for a few days, or just a few hours, every bit helps con­tinue the suc­cess of this iconic event and gives hope to Queens­lan­ders af­fected by cancer.”

Ms McMil­lan said across the State more than 2000 vol­un­teers would de­scend on 280 lo­ca­tions, to help sell more than 800,000 fresh daffodils on Fri­day, Au­gust 25.
