Hope blooms with daffodils
CANCER Council Queensland hopes to sell more than 60,000 daffodils in Townsville for Daffodil Day to help support people with cancer.
Cancer Council Queensland will celebrate the fundraising campaign during the entire month of August, with the official Daffodil Day date falling on August 25.
The daffodil is the international symbol of hope and every daffodil sold will help support Queensland people with all types of cancer.
Cancer Council Queensland CEO Chris McMillan said they were encouraging locals to help turn Townsville into a sea of yellow. “Last year in Townsville we sold more than 62,000 daffodils to raise vital funds for our work locally and hope to sell just as many again this year,” she said.
“Locals can support the cause by wearing a daffodil pin for someone they know, volunteering to help sell daffodils – or simply buying a bunch on August 25.
“In North Queensland alone, more than 1440 people are diagnosed with cancer each year. Your support on Daffodil Day enables us to reach out and support those affected.” For more information visit
