Daffodil Day this Friday

This Friday is Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day – a national day of hope for Australians to show they care about beating cancer.

Cancer Council hopes to raise $9.7 million nationally with funds going towards research, prevention, advocacy programs and support services.

More than 5000 volunteers across NSW will sell Cancer Council pins on the day at over 600 sites including train stations, bus stops and major shopping areas in across the Hunter region.

“It is thanks to funds raised by the community through events like Daffodil Day that Cancer Council NSW can continue to offer its evidence-based survivorship support programs,” Cancer Council communications and events coordinator Leigh Buckland said.

Member for Cessnock Clayton Barr will be wearing his Daffodil Day pin on Friday and urges the community to dig deep and give generously, and to spare a thought for those who have had a cancer experience or who have lost someone to cancer.
