Te Puke helps boost Cancer Society funds
Te Puke has helped the Cancer Society’s work to the tune of $4546 raised during the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society’s 2018 Daffodil Day campaign.
The Cancer Society says every dollar dropped into their collection buckets or donated online will be spent on supporting New Zealanders with all types of cancer and helping prevent future cancers through education, advocacy and vital research.
“It’s fantastic to see our communities join forces to raise funds and awareness so that together we can help beat cancer. We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of the Te Puke community, and would like to thank everyone who supported Daffodil Day this year,” says Catriona Findlay, who is fundraising manager for Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society.
“Daffodil Day in Te Puke is organised and run entirely by volunteers, so a special shout out must go to our local coordinator Linda Smith and all volunteers who gave their time to help with the appeal. We’re also appreciative of the schools, clubs and businesses who get behind Daffodil Day and of course the general public who have donated so generously.”
The Cancer Society is a non-profit organisation which relies on fundraising, donations and sponsorship to provide free services and programmes.
“From providing practical and emotional support to helping Kiwis reduce their risk, every dollar goes a long way to make a difference in our communities,” Catriona says.
