Thank you everyone who donated and supported Daffodil Day 2016.
Seeing our national awareness campaign come together each year, and seeing so many people wearing daffodils, is very rewarding for the Cancer Society. A special thanks to the thousands of volunteers around the country who give up their time to ensure our message of awareness is delivered - we couldn’t do the work we do without your help.
Donations received will go towards vital research into the causes and treatment of all types of cancer as well as providing a range of support services, information, health promotion and education programmes to reduce cancer risk, awareness campaigns and programmes for people affected by cancers.
It was great to see schools, work places, politicians, sports men and woman, members of the New Zealand Defence Force and even detector dogs at Christchurch Airport getting behind the cause and raising awareness for the one in three people affected by cancer in New Zealand each year.
And to our principal sponsor ANZ for supporting the work we do year after year, we say a huge thank you. During our 26 year partnership, ANZ have gone above and beyond to promote Daffodil Day as an important cancer awareness day around the country and the staff all pull together to fundraise on our behalf.
Thank you all!
Claire Austin, Cancer Society of New Zealand CEO
