Kind­ness blos­soms for fundraiser

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

WHEN it comes to nee­dles and wool, the res­i­dents at Mercy Place Lath­lain know a thing or two.

So they put those skills to good use last week to sup­port the Can­cer Coun­cil’s Daf­fodil Day, mak­ing hand­crafted daf­fodils.

Mercy Place Lath­lain ser­vice man­ager Lorraine Wal­lis said the craft group was a won­der­ful car­ing and shar­ing group of se­niors who of­fered each other sup­port, ad­vice, en­cour­age­ment and who also en­joy a good laugh to­gether each week.

“Our craft group ladies have been work­ing hard to make the most won­der­ful daf­fodils which they in­tend to sell to raise money for Daf­fodil Day.

“This is a cause that is par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant to them as many have had friends or fam­ily mem­bers di­ag­nosed with can­cer in re­cent years,” she said.

“They are a truly ded­i­cated group of peo­ple who have a real com­mit­ment to help­ing oth­ers.”

Daf­fodil Day is an an­nual event to raise funds for the Can­cer Coun­cil’s re­search, preven­tion and sup­port ser­vices.­mu­ni­ d442798
