What an awesome day!

12,000 volunteers and staff around the country took to the streets on Friday to raise funds for the work we do in our com
munities. There were 2,180 volunteers in the Wellington region alone.

We couldn't have done it without them!

People have given generously of their time and money and we have heard some humbling stories from extraordinary people all over the country, such as:

  • A collector volunteering for three hours in a cold southerly and at the end of the shift donated $50

  • A father and son collected together as a way to remember their mother who passed away six years ago

Thank you everyone for all your efforts. 

We had some great coverage in the media leading up to Daffodil Day and here are some highlights:

We felt the support across the country, even the Skytower in Auckland was lit up like a daffodil for us!
