Give generously on Daffodil Day: 26th August 2016

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 hope for the 1 in 3 New Zealanders affected by cancer.

Daffodil Day is a major funding source for the Cancer Society, as well as an opportunity to raise awareness of cancer in New Zealand.

You can help by volunteering as a Daffodil Day collector – over 7,000 collectors are needed nationwide.
