Choose yellow to helpfight cancer

GYMPIE region residents are being called out by the Cancer Council Queensland to support Daffodil Day this year.

The Cancer Council is in urgent need of 46 more supporters in the region to order Daffodil Day merchandise for their workplaces, schools, homes and community groups before August 20.

Daffodil Day supporters can order a pre-packed box of merchandise at no cost and help raise money for Cancer Council Queensland’s invaluable work by selling the merchandise to friends, family and customers during August.

Cancer Council Queensland Fundraising Co-ordinator Jodi Durkin said preparations for Daffodil Day were well underway but more supporters were needed to make August 27 a success.

Ms Durkin has crunched the numbers and to help reach the goal of more than $1.87 million, 46 more people are needed to step up to the challenge and order a merchandise box.

“Daffodil Day is all about turning Queensland yellow in support of Queenslanders affected by cancer and by adding a splash of yellow from a merchandise box in your workplace, school or home, you can make a real difference in our fight against cancer,” Ms Durkin said.

Money raised will support the Cancer Council’s vital work in cancer research, patient support services and community education programs.

The daffodil is the international symbol of hope for those touched by cancer, including patients, survivors, supporters, carers, family and friends, as it blooms at the end of winter and heralds the returns of spring, vitality and growth.

To order Daffodil Day merchandise please visit or call 1300 65 65 85.
