The Can­cer Society’s an­nual flag­ship event, Daf­fodil Day one of its most im­por­tant fundrais­ing and can­cer aware­ness events - is this Fri­day, Au­gust 31. Now in its 27th year, Daf­fodil Day raises aware­ness of can­cer and is the big­gest gen­er­a­tor of funds for the Can­cer Society.

The daf­fodil, with its bright yel­low bloom, rep­re­sents hope for the one in three New Zealan­ders af­fected by can­cer each year. To raise funds, the Can­cer Society HB is oper­at­ing a pop-up store be­tween 10am to 4pm from Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 29 un­til Daf­fodil Day on Fri­day, Au­gust 31 in­side the old Envy Shoes shop along Ru­atani­wha St in Waipuku­rau.

Lo­cal co­or­di­na­tor Sally Petro said there would be raf­fle tick­ets and var­i­ous “bits-and-bobs” for sale, in­clud­ing Daf­fodil Day t-shirts, tea tow­els and car­rier bags.

On Daf­fodil Day, there would also be a cake stall from 8am out­side the pop-up shop. Mem­bers of the CHB Vin­tage Car Club will also be vis­it­ing in their ve­hi­cles and, weather per­mit­ting, there would also be a minia­ture pony on hand to en­ter­tain the kids, she said. Busi­nesses are also in­vited to take part in the “Paint the Town Yel­low” pro­mo­tion.
