And thanks from us

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

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 can­ or phone 0800 CAN­CER (0800 226 237).
