Cancer Council NSW is encouraging people across the state to participate in Daffodil Day – in support of someone they know who has been affected by cancer. Celebrating its 30th year in 2016, Daffodil Day is a leading Cancer Council fundraising event and one of the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.

The event helps fund vital cancer research, prevention, advocacy and support services for all Australians, from cancer patients and carers to families and friends. Daffodil Day has raised over $133 million since it began, and this year aims to raise $2.6m in NSW and $6.7m nationally.

There are a number of ways in which you can support Daffodil Day:

• Buy a pin today. As well as pins, you can buy an array of other merchandise. Boxes of merchandise can be found on the desks of many businesses in and around Orange including the Orange City Life office. Pop in, say g’day and grab a badge!
