South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place -

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.

Judy Gould, chief ex­ec­u­tive
