On the 24th of August, it’s that time of year again where you will see yellow on the streets of Gladstone, in support for the Cancer Council’s fundraising event, Daffodil Day. It’s a special day where we can unite as a community to help raise awareness and build funds for cancer research, prevention programs and patient support services.
Thanks to research, over 61,000 australian lives have been reached & supported by the improvements made in cancer prevention, screenings and treatments. Even by donating as little as $15, you are helping equip groundbreaking researchers with the resources they need to carry out their life saving work. This year the event celebrates 32 years of turning Australia yellow, with the aim to raise more than $4 million for cancer research.
Led by Volunteer branch member Pat Perry, teams of volunteers will be selling fresh daffodils and other merchandise around Gladstone. Mrs Perry encourages locals to sign up and volunteer a few hours to help sell daffodils, “We always welcome extra volunteers to help lighten the load and make the day possible,” she said. “If anyone wants to get involved they can phone me on 0409 602 370 or Glenda Cordwell on 0429 420 302.”.
Get involved this daffodil day by purchasing a daffodil from the following locations on the 24th August between 8:30am to 5pm:
