Some cute kids were on hand to help launch Cancer Council Queensland’s upcoming fundraiser, Daffodil Day on the Gold Coast today.

Children at Bonny Babes Childcare Centre at Oxenford dressed up in yellow and wore daffodil hats today to officially launch the fundraiser.

This year Cancer Council Queensland will celebrate 32 years of Daffodil Day throughout August, with the official day falling on Friday, August 24.


Bonny Babes Childcare Centre have signed up as a Daffodil Day supporter and will raise funds throughout the month of August for Cancer Council Queensland.

Cancer Council Queensland Community Fundraising Coordinator Andie Davis told myGC they are hoping to raise $1 million in Queensland this Daffodil Day.

“The daffodil is the international symbol of hope. All funds raised this year will be invested in vital cancer research,” she said.

This year Queenslanders can get involved by volunteering to sell daffodils on the official day, purchasing fresh flowers or dedicating a virtual daffodil to someone they love.

This year on the Gold Coast more than 160 volunteers will be at 48 sites on and around August 24, selling fresh daffodils to help raise funds.
