Will you help hope bloom this Daffodil Day?

Wednesday 6 July, 2016

Cancer Council is calling on Victorians to help beat cancer by volunteering for the 30th year of Daffodil Day on Friday 26 August.

Volunteers are needed to sell Daffodil Day merchandise for the 30th year of the campaign. All money raised will support those affected by cancer through information and services, as well as funding prevention programs and cancer research.

Daffodil Day Merchandise With the help of around 2000 volunteers, merchandise will be available at 250 street stalls across Victoria.

Cancer Council Victoria's Head of Events Megan Potter said the charity was hoping to raise $1.4 million in Victoria this Daffodil Day, and local involvement would be vital in reaching the target.

"Thank you to everyone who supports Daffodil Day in their community each and every year. Across Victoria there many amazing volunteers and site coordinators, including some who have volunteered their time for Daffodil Day for 20 consecutive years! Others will be taking part for the very first time," Ms Potter said.

"Whether you're volunteering to support someone you know affected by cancer, want to give back to the community, or like the idea of spending a couple of hours with friends for a good cause, every volunteer will play a critical role this Daffodil Day."

Mr Potter said Cancer Council was excited to be celebrating 30 years of Daffodil Day, with all funds raised going towards cancer research, prevention programs and support services.

Those who volunteer will be matched with a site that's convenient to them.
