Help hope bloom this Daffodil Day!

5 August 2014

Every day in Australia, around 350 people are told they have a life-threatening cancer and sadly more than 115 people die of the disease each day.

With your help, we can make a difference and beat this disease…so make a date this Daffodil Day, Friday 22 August.

The daffodil is the international symbol of hope for everyone living with cancer. This year, Cancer Council Western Australia aims to raise $800,000 to fund life-saving cancer research, prevention programs and support services.

Support Daffodil Day and show you care about beating cancer. Every daffodil and every donation goes toward helping those who are affected by cancer.

Why not brighten up your day with a splash of yellow and show you care by wearing a Cancer Council pin ($5), or you can purchase an item from the new Daffodil Day range, including  daffodil pens ($6), the cute and collectable ‘fitness’ Dougal Bear ($10) and of course, bunches of fresh daffodils.

Daffodil Day stalls will be in major shopping centres across Western Australia and Daffodil Day volunteers will be out in force across the city of Perth on Friday 22 August.

Cancer Council’s national supporters include Coles Express and Coles Supermarkets, who this year celebrate their 19th year of being pin partners for Daffodil Day.

Funds that are raised through Coles and Coles Express will be directed to Cancer Council’s support services in local communities across Australia.

On Daffodil Day itself, two cents from every litre of fuel sold at Shell/Coles Express will be donated to Cancer Council.

Getting involved is easy - you can purchase an item from the Daffodil Day range at selected outlets during August, and on Daffodil Day itself, Friday 22 August.

And if you’d like to volunteer, donate or help out on the day, simply call us on 1300 65 65 85.
