Let's go mellow yellow!

SCORES of Daffodil Day supporters will turn the town yellow with flowers and merchandise today.

Kathy Derrett was among the smiling volunteers who were kept busy yesterday trimming daffodil stems to keep the flowers fresh.

Since Daffodil Day was established in 1986, Australians have donated more than $100 million to the event.

The Cancer Council’s Ruth Gollan said money raised today would fund vital research, support services and prevention campaigns which had helped improve the survival rates from many common cancers by 30%.

“Every cent people generously give contributes to a fight that we can win together with the community’s ongoing support.

"That’s why we’re encouraging everyone in the Coffs Harbour region to help paint the town yellow this Daffodil Day.”
