For the last 28 years, Daffodil Day has been integral to the lives of people with cancer and their whānau. Held on the last Friday of August, the annual appeal is the Cancer Society’s largest and most iconic fundraising event – involving thousands of volunteers and fundraisers across New Zealand.
The daffodil is one of the first flowers of spring, whose bright yellow blooms remind us of the joys the new season will bring. It represents the hope there is for the one in three people affected by cancer.
Money raised from Daffodil Day stays in our region to help ensure that no one in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty has to face cancer alone. From providing free support to people with cancer and funding research to helping Kiwis reduce their risk through education and advocacy, every dollar goes a long way to help people in our communities.
