Daf­fodil Day flour­ishes

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Mata­mata was awash with yel­low on Fri­day as the town emp­tied their pock­ets to raise funds for the Can­cer So­ci­ety on Daf­fodil Day.

Teresa Hat­tan and Abby Brown were out and about snap­ping pho­tos.

This year, a to­tal of $12,176.20 was raised by the com­mu­nity.

Area co-or­di­na­tor Rex­ine Hawes said this is a new Mata­mata Daf­fodil Day fundrais­ing record.

‘‘It’s re­ally not about how big the fi­nal fig­ure is, but about how big Mata­mata’s heart is,’’ she said.
