Local Cancer Council NSW volunteer Anita Nolan is encouraging people across Deniliquin to join her in raising money on Daffodil Day this year.
Mrs Nolan will lead a dedicated team of volunteers in selling Cancer Council pins and merchandise at the Cressy St kiosk this Friday.
There will also be a stall at IGA supermarket and a morning tea hosted at My Shop in Napier St.
‘‘Cancer Council is dedicated to beating cancer and volunteering on Daffodil Day helps raise vital funds to help do this,’’ Mrs Nolan said.
‘‘I’m honoured to volunteer for a great cause and I encourage the people of Deniliquin to show they care by buying a Cancer Council pin, visiting a site or going one better by leading a team this Daffodil Day.’’
Anthea Driscoll of Cancer Council’s Wagga office has praised Mrs Nolan and other team leaders who will manage more than 5000 volunteers at 600 plus sites in NSW.
‘‘Our team leaders are so important in providing a support network for their volunteers and getting their communities involved on the day,’’ Miss Driscoll said.
‘‘Mrs Nolan has been volunteering for Daffodil Day for a number of years now and should be very proud of her achievement.’’
Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day represents hope for a cancer-free future and is the largest national fundraising event of its kind in the southern hemisphere.
