Daffodil Day

Friday, 25 August 2017

Mark Coure MP has registered to volunteer for Cancer Council NSW’s Daffodil Day on Friday 25 August 2017 in Oatley.

Now in its 31st year, Daffodil Day is one of the largest fundraising events in the Southern Hemisphere, representing hope for Australians living with cancer.        

As a volunteer, Mr Coure will have an important role in selling fresh daffodils and Cancer Council merchandise at Oatley train station.  

“It’s a great feeling to be able to give back to the community and raise funds for Cancer Council.  The more support we receive on Daffodil Day, the more we can do to beat this terrible disease,” said Mr Coure.

Jessica Green, Regional Manager at Cancer Council NSW’s Metro Sydney office said, “This year’s theme is ‘For Someone I Know’, which is all about showing support for anybody who has been affected by a cancer diagnosis – whether that’s a patient, a carer, friend or family member.

“It’s so great to see Mark Coure showing his support for Daffodil Day. His contribution will help us to continue the work we do to beat cancer in the community.

“People from Southern Sydney can get involved in any way they can, whether that involves buying a daffodil, visiting a Daffodil Day site or performing an act of kindness for someone they know.

“Each year we have over 4,500 volunteers across 650 sites across NSW. Last year, we raised $2.1 million for vital cancer research, prevention programs and support services that directly benefit people across our region.”

By supporting Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day, the Southern Sydney community will contribute towards a brighter, cancer-free future.
