Daffodils bloom for street appeal
Volunteers from across the South West shone in pops of bright yellow through the Bunbury Geographe region for the 33rd annual Daffodil Day street appeal on Friday.
Cancer Council South West regional education officer Shenae Norris said she was thrilled with how many people volunteered their time to help out.
“Daffodil Day is Cancer Council’s most iconic and much-loved fundraising campaign because the daffodil gives us hope and we were thrilled with the support from the community on the day,” Ms Norris said.
“Approximately 70 people volunteered on the day in the Bunbury Geographe region, both in the street appeal and at the various stall locations.”
“Research is fundamental to unlocking the answers for a cancer-free future.”
Bunbury Daffodil Day coordinator Sue Suckling said she was thrilled with the kindness of people in the community.
“Despite forecasts for rain, the sun shone on us making the yellow sparkle and generating smiles everywhere,” Mrs Suckling said.
“We would like to thank the community for their generosity, the local businesses who got behind us and supported us on the day, and all of the volunteers who gave their time and energy.”
The total amount raised from the day was $13,000.
