Buy a daffodil and show your support

DAFFODIL Day, a national day for Australians to show they care about beating cancer, is tomorrow and locals can buy flowers to contribute to a brighter, cancer-free future.

"Daffodil Day provides funds to support vital cancer research, and develop cancer prevention and advocacy programs," said Daffodil Day co-ordinator Sarah Royall.

"The money also helps provide both practical and emotional support services for people affected by cancer."

Eighty sites across the Far North Coast will be selling fresh daffodils and merchandise, including pens, pins and bears, with more than 100 Byron Shire residents volunteering their time in the fight against cancer.

If a sausage sizzle and a bacon and egg roll is more your style, then get along to Byron Woolworths or Byron Bunnings from 8.30am tomorrow for a tasty Daffodil Day brekkie. Volunteer opportunities are still available.

Phone Sarah on 6639 1303.
