Cancer Council NSW would like to sincerely thank and congratulate the Northern NSW community for the incredible support, community spirit and goodwill shown towards this year’s Grow Hope campaign to support Daffodil Day.
The event was an outstanding success with over 1000 dedicated volunteers helping to fundraise over $300,000.This year again proves how charitable our Northern NSW community is and how proud as a region we should feel in supporting a cancer free future in Australia. Cancer Council NSW would like to thank the many Team Leaders, countless Volunteers, school students and teachers, local businesses, community groups and individual donors who gave their time throughout August and on the official event day, Friday 23rd August. It truly was an amazing community fundraising event.
All funds raised on Daffodil Day are directed into aiding vital cancer research, prevention programs and support services (like the Cancer Council Helpline – 13 11 20). Whether we are providing eligible cancer patients with financial assistance towards paying a bill, or providing legal and financial planning referral services and counselling services, or providing resources for cancer patients and families, or providing a helpline number for the cost of a local call (13 11 20), Cancer Council ensures that cancer patients have the support and information they need. Cancer Council also invested $16 million into research last financial year, ensuring cancer patients have a higher survival rate through better and more targeted treatments.
As the leading cancer charity in NSW, we will never stop fighting for that almighty cure.
Thank you again Northern NSW, you are a wonderful community.
Sarah Royall, Cancer Council NSW Northern Region.
