Locals urged to grab a sale bargain for a good cause

Local op shoppers have been urged to grab a bargain at Cancer Council Queensland’s Palm Beach Daffodil Shop before the store closes its doors for the last time this Saturday April 30.

The clearance sale will run right up until closing, with discounts on all pre-loved clothing for men, women and children, glassware, crockery and kitchen accessories, books, games toys, jewellery and watches.

The store has served the Gold Coast region for more than 20 years, providing vital funding for cancer research and patient support.


Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift said the sale of second-hand items helped to raise about $50,000 last year. “All proceeds from our Palm Beach store go directly to supporting Queenslanders affected by cancer,” Ms Clift said.

“One person is diagnosed with cancer every 20 minutes in Queensland – the Daffodil Shop is a great way to raise funds through community engagement. Our loyal customers enable us to continue investing in cancer research and support for patients.

“While the shop has performed consistently well, thanks to the efforts of our dedicated volunteers, the cost of rent has gone up considerably. We are currently reviewing our options for trading at a different location, and may consolidate our Gold Coast retail activity at the Coolangatta Daffodil Shop.

“Thank you to the Gold Coast community for your continuous support and generosity – your support makes a vital difference to our work.”

The shop is located at 1176 Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach. More information about Cancer Council Queensland is available at cancerqld.org.au or 13 11 20.
