THANKS TO SUPPORTERS
The Waikato/bay of Plenty Cancer Society would like to extend a resounding note of thanks to everyone in the South Waikato community who supported our 2016 Daffodil Day appeal.
Held on the last Friday of August, Daffodil Day is our biggest day of the year.
The success of the event depends on countless individuals, most of them volunteers, both on the day and in the lead up to the event.
Although we cannot mention everyone in this short letter, we would especially like to thank our volunteer area coordinators Brian Hill in Mangakino, Linda Smith in Taumarunui, Lois Gardiner in Tirau and Olive Southon in Putaruru.
We are also extremely grateful for the support of our many volunteers, the individuals who donated and the businesses, schools and community groups who took part or supported Daffodil Day in various ways.
Funds are still coming in, so we don’t have a fundraising total to report just yet, but early signs are that the community has once again shown tremendous generosity this year.
All proceeds from Daffodil Day will stay in our region to help those affected by cancer in our local communities, to deliver cancer prevention programmes and to fund cancer research.
Many thanks once again for your amazing support.
