Cancer Council calling for extra Daffodil Day helpers

Riverina residents are being asked to support people affected by cancer by volunteering their time on Daffodil Day.

Daffodil Day, which is now in its 31st year, will be held on Friday, August 24, and the Cancer Council needs more people to join the volunteer team.      

The volunteers’ primary role will be selling fresh daffodils and Cancer Council merchandise at the Wagga Daffodil Day stall. 

“I’d encourage everyone to get involved in any way they can, for example by volunteering,”  Brianna Carracher from Cancer Council NSW’s western office said.

“Volunteers provide invaluable support for the organisation. If you can’t volunteer, you can still buy and wear a daffodil pin, visit a Daffodil Day site or donate online.”

“Each year we have more than 4500 volunteers across 650 sites in NSW. Last year, we raised $2.1 million for vital cancer research, prevention programs and support services that directly benefit people across our region.”
