And thanks from us
On behalf of the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Division of the Cancer Society I wish to thank the people of Matamata for their immense support of Daffodil Day 2012. We are pleased to announce another successful result, with more than $630,000 being raised for the region, a wonderful result due to the generosity and support of people in this community.
I would also like to extend a huge thank you to the volunteers who gave their time to support our appeal; we simply could not have done it without you.
As the Cancer Society receives no direct Government funding, we are heavily reliant on donations and fundraising activities, such as Daffodil Day, to continue our community work.
Donations from Daffodil Day are used for supportive care for cancer patients, their carers, whanau and friends, to fund cancer research and provide the public with information on the ways to reduce the risk of cancer through a smokefree, sunsmart, healthy lifestyle.
Once again a big thank you to everyone who supported Daffodil Day 2012 and if you would like more information on the many cancer support services that the Cancer Society provides in the Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Thames/Coromandel, King Country, Rotorua and Taupo areas then please visit cancernz.org.nz or phone 0800 CANCER (0800 226 237).
