State Member for Bundaberg David Batt has today joined the Bundaberg Branch of Cancer Council Queensland and the staff at Grindstone Coffee House to launch the 33rd year of the Daffodil Day Appeal.
With just over two weeks until Daffodil Day on Friday August 23, Mr Batt is encouraging local residents to get involved and help raise funds for Cancer Council’s lifesaving cancer research.
“I encourage everyone to drop into Grindstones, grab a great coffee, dedicate a paper daffodil to a loved one or friend, pin it to the photo wall and make a donation if you can,” Mr Batt said.
“Here in the Wide Bay Burnett, approximately 1700 residents are diagnosed with cancer each year so this cause is one that’s very close to our hearts.
“I’d like to say a big thank you to the Grindstone Coffee House in the CBD for supporting such a fantastic cause.”
Mr Batt is also urging residents to volunteer for the Daffodil Day Appeal.
“I’ll be volunteering at the CBD pavilion on August 23 and I know Cancer Council is seeking volunteers for sites at Bundaberg’s Northway Plaza and Bunnings, as well as needing assistance at Childers and Biggenden,” he said.
Those interested can contact the Bundaberg Cancer Council office on 4150 4500.
