Two Go Transit buses having been busy spreading yellow cheer around the Gold Coast in support of Queensland’s most iconic fundraising campaign, Daffodil Day.
From June until August 28, Go Transit bus 472 and 445 will raise awareness of Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day, August 28, and encourage locals to show they care about beating cancer by taking action.
This year, Queenslanders can show their support for Daffodil Day by purchasing yellow merchandise, wearing a pin, or volunteering to sell daffodils on the official day.

The Go Transit bus banners are proudly sponsored by Jupiters Hotel & Casino, long-term supporters of Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day.
Jupiters Hotel & Casino Managing Director Geoff Hogg said supporting the community is important to the entire Jupiters team, who are again proud to partner with Cancer Council Queensland’s annual Daffodil Day campaign.
“As a major supporter of Cancer Council Queensland’s Daffodil Day, our team is proud to join forces with this worthy cause for another year as it celebrates its 30th anniversary in August,” Mr Hogg said.
“So many locals rely on the fantastic work Cancer Council Queensland provides our community and this campaign is an important way to spread the message of hope throughout our streets and support the vision of creating a cancer free future.”
Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift said community support helped grow hope for better treatments and hope for more survivors.
“A bright splash of yellow does more than light up the community – it means we are taking steps to beat cancer and to show our support to those affected,” Ms Clift said.
“We are thankful for the kind support of Go Transit and Jupiters Hotel & Casino in helping raise important awareness and encouraging locals to get on board.
“Every year on the Gold Coast, around 3500 people are told they have a life-threatening cancer and more than 1000 people die of the disease.”
“But with your help, we can make a tangible difference and beat cancer.”
This year, Cancer Council Queensland hopes to raise $1.7 million through the annual event to support its vital work in cancer research, education programs and patient support services.
