Celebrate Daffodil Day 2007

Monday 6 August, 2007

Why not celebrate Daffodil Day in a field of daffodils? Janet Blainey will open her daffodil farm to the public on Friday 24, Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 August to raise funds for The Cancer Council Victoria.

"Having cared for her daughter during her fight with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Janet is one of the Cancer Council's most passionate supporters," Daffodil Day Coordinator Irene Manitta said. "She's also an excellent example of one of our many supporters who use their own interests to generate funds for the cancer fight."

With the daffodil being the international symbol of hope for all those affected by cancer, Janet combines her love of gardening with her enthusiasm for fundraising for the Cancer Council.

"Janet grows daffodils purely to raise funds for our cancer research, education and support programs," Ms Manitta said. "She makes no profits from her daffodils: they are grown solely to benefit the 60 Victorians diagnosed with cancer every day."

Guests at the Daffodil Farm are invited to pick their own daffodils, have a freshly cooked bite to eat, and enjoy a day in the country while helping support the Cancer Council. Guests are asked to make a gold coin donation at the gate of the farm, which is located at 220 McGlone Road Drouin.
