Thanks to vol­un­teers, pub­lic

Te Awamutu Courier - - News - KATHY KEIGHLEY Te Awa­mutu Daf­fodil Day co­or­di­na­tor

When each per­son gives a lit­tle, we can raise a lot, and this year we have been able to con­trib­ute $7942.30 to the Waikato Can­cer So­ci­ety through its An­nual Daf­fodil Day Street Ap­peal.

This is a fan­tas­tic ef­fort, and it’s due to the gen­eros­ity of all the vol­un­teers who of­fered their time to pick, bun­dle, dis­trib­ute and sell daf­fodils — to the Rose­town and Pakeke Lions Clubs, the Lyceum and Bridge Clubs who held fundraiser ac­tiv­i­ties, the Rest Homes, the Events Cen­tre and other busi­nesses around town who had boxes of sup­plies to sell, the Cam­bridge char­ity daf­fodil busi­ness, Waik­e­ria Prison, and mem­bers of the pub­lic who do­nated fresh flow­ers, the busi­nesses who let us have stands out­side their premises, and the Keas from Piron­gia – and their par­ents.

This, how­ever, is the in­fra­struc­ture — it is you we thank, the pub­lic who will­ingly sup­port the fundraiser to raise the funds and make a dif­fer­ence, and on be­half of the Vol­un­teer Can­cer Sup­port Group in Te Awa­mutu I ex­tend to each and every one of you who gave what you could so gen­er­ously a heart­felt thank you.
