Go dry this July and support Cancer Council NSW.
This year, funds raised through Dry July will go towards supporting our two new projects.
Through your fundraising efforts we will be able to support the 1 in 2 Australians affected by cancer in their lifetime.
Message from CEO Jim L’Estrange
As you know, Daffodil Day is one of Australia’s best known events and has raised over $133 million nationally for life-saving cancer research, support services and prevention programs, which is a fantastic achievement.
But more than this, Daffodil Day is a special day where we proudly show the daffodil, and the hope that it represents, across the whole NSW community.
All of this is possible only thanks to people like you – we couldn’t do it without the support of thousands of volunteers on the day and a community that gives so generously.
If you’re a long-term supporter of Daffodil Day, thank you for your dedication, passion and contribution over the years and I hope you’ll join us again this year.
If you’ve never participated before, I really encourage you to get involved. Daffodil Day is a great opportunity for us interact face-to-face with the community and thank them for supporting the work of Cancer Council NSW.
