THE cheerful yellow of daffodils not only brightens up a gloomy winter’s day, but is also the symbol of the Cancer Council representing hope for a cancer-free future.
As today is Daffodil Day, one of Australia’s best known and most popular fundraising events, a stall will be set up outside Ritchie’s Newsagents in Carp St, Bega, with assorted merchandise and fresh daffodils for sale from 9am until 4pm.
There will also be scratchies for sale for the money tree raffle, to be drawn at the Pink Ribbon Day/Daffodil Day major local fundraiser in October.
Each day more than 100 Australians will die of cancer.
Daffodil Day helps grow hope for better treatments, hope for more survivors, hope for a cure.
All money raised from the sale of Daffodil Day merchandise will assist the Cancer Council in continuing its work in cancer research, providing patient support programs and prevention programs to all Australians.
