Power of flower
IT IS that time of year again to dig deep and support the one in two Queenslanders who will be diagnosed with cancer.
Fresh daffodils and merchandise will be on sale today at the new Emporium nursery at the Kaesbie Gardens complex.
While Emerald organiser Kerri Deakin said she was looking forward to raising some much-needed funds, plans had changed this year due to a glitch in the daffodil order.
“We were going to get 6000 flowers, but we only received 600,” Kerri said, which is why volunteers won’t be selling Daffodils at the Emerald Centro complexes.
“Next year we will be back there though.”
Kerri said there was no set fundraising target, but as long as they sold all the fresh flowers she would be happy.
“We’re just trying to make money for Cancer Council Queensland,” she said.
“It would be great if everyone could support Daffodil Day to let others know people care and show support for the cause.”
Kerri said all funds received from the purchase of daffodils at the Emporium nursery would go towards Cancer Council Queensland.
This Daffodil Day, the Cancer Council hopes to sell 800,000 fresh yellow daffodils at more than 280 sites throughout Queensland.
