Get on board to volunteer

CANCER Council Queensland is urgently seeking volunteers before Daffodil Day on August 27.

Cancer council coordinator Kim Walters said that to reach the goal of raising $1.87 million across the state, 182 more volunteers were needed.

“We've crunched the numbers and, to help us reach our goal of raising more than $1.87 million across the state, we need 182 more people from the Central Queensland region to step up to the challenge and order a merchandise box today,” Ms Walters said.

A long-time local volunteer, Christine Mckee, said Gladstone, specifically, sought more volunteers to help out with the big day.

“It is a great event and it is really nice to do something that helps people,” Ms Mckee said.

Ms Mckee got involved with Daffodil Day three years ago and has kept helping since.

There are many events throughout the year supporting cancer research, and Daffodil Day is one of them.

To get behind the cause stalls will be set up at Stockland Gladstone on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the last week of August with additional stalls at Coles Tannum and The Coffee Club on Friday, August 27.

To order Daffodil Day merchandise to sell on behalf of Cancer Council Queensland, or to volunteer, visit www.daffodilday.com.au or call 1300 65 65 85.
