Heroes come in yellow
MAREEBA and Dimbulah will turn yellow for today with volunteers selling daffodils to raise funds for Cancer Council Queensland.
Lisa Wyer, Kay Harrold and Cathy Cowan (pictured) will be among those selling flowers.
Mareeba and Dimbulah will turn yellow today to raise funds for Cancer Council as volunteers set up stations to sell daffodils and merchandise for Daffodil Day.
About 360 bunches of daffodils which equals out to be about 4000 individual flowers will be distributed this year.
Daffodils are a symbol for hope across the world and represents those that have been lost, survived or affected because of cancer.
Mareeba Cancer Council volunteer Kay Harrold said she has been a volunteer for more than 25 years.
While now retired, she said that when she first started working at the Mareeba Hospital many years ago she finally understood the effects that cancer can have on everyone.
“We are raising money so that one day we can find a cure,” she said.
Cancer Council volunteer Annette Morrison said she volunteers so that she can help people and she hopes that other people will come forward and help the cause. Stalls will be set up around Mareeba and Dimbulah today for those who would like to help support Daffodil Day. Last year about $4000 was raised in the Mareeba and Dimbulah area.
