The Cape Byron Lighthouse Turns Yellow Celebrating 25 years of Hope for Daffodil Day

15-08-2011

The Cape Byron Lighthouse will be   shining yellow through the night sky next week to mark the 25th year anniversary of the Cancer Council’s flagship fundraiser, Daffodil Day.  

 The Far North Coast Regional Office of the Cancer Council has gained permission from National Parks and the Cape Byron Trust to have the Cape Byron Lighthouse lit yellow during the week leading up to Daffodil Day.

 Andrew Penman, CEO of Cancer Council NSW will be officially launching the lighting of the Lighthouse on the evening of 22 August.

 Kellie Pinkerton, Community Relations Co-ordinator commented that “Daffodil Day is about hope and the symbolism of the Cape Byron Lighthouse being lit yellow will act as a beacon of hope for the Far North Coast community. With one in two people being diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85 we are reminded that everyone will be affected by cancer at some stage, whether it’s personally, or a family member, a friend or someone in our community”.

   “What we want is for the Far North Coast community to look upon the lighthouse during this week and remember those who lost their battle with cancer reflect on their own cancer journey or recognise survivors and carers on the Far North Coast” said Kellie Pinkerton.

 Daffodil Day is the flagship fundraiser which raises funds for cancer research s and  support for those undergoing cancer treatment and prevention programs. Far North Coast residents undergoing cancer treatment can gain access to services such as the Cancer Council Helpline, transport, financial assistance, legal referral services and have access to Cancer Council Information Centre at St Vincent’s Hospital and soon to be opened Tweed Hospital. Daffodil Day contributes to funding for these services.

 Creative Lighting Solutions, a local company in Byron Bay, will be providing the yellow lighting for the Cape Byron Lighthouse which will be lit from 6pm to  10pm nightly from the week of the 22August until Daffodil Day on Friday 26 August.

 On Daffodil Day, Friday 26 August the Far North Coast has 60 sites selling merchandise, fresh daffodils and taking donations for the Cancer Council. The Far North Coast region will also have the most Easterly Daffodil Day site in Australia with a site at the Cape Byron Lighthouse.
