Going yellow for Daffodil Day
With bright yellow streamers, balloons and dress-ups, the kids at Mullumbimby Community Preschool celebrated Daffodil Day (August 27) this week to acknowledge and give hope to those affected by cancer.
“Cancer doesn’t discriminate and it has touched the kindergarten here in the past and it touches many people’s lives,” preschool teacher Di Davison said.
Ms Davison said the community preschool had been a ‘sun-smart’ centre for many years and that one of the sun shelters in the playground was funded by The Cancer Council.
“We’ve had sun-smart policies here for a long time and while we don’t sell the toys or anything for Daffodil Day, we do like to support The Cancer Council’s work however we can,” Ms Davison said.
According to The Cancer Council, more than 28,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in NSW each year.
Money raised from Daffodil Day will help fund cancer research, education and much-needed support programs.
