Daffodil Day 2018

Daffodil Awareness month 1 - 31 August 2018
Daffodil Day - 31 August 2018

Daffodil Day is the Cancer Society of New Zealand's annual appeal which helps fund the Society's wide range of patient and carer services, which are provided free-of-charge, including a helpline, patient transport, and cancer research.

Daffodil Day symbolises all New Zealanders coming together in the fight against cancer. Here's how you can get involved:


This year we've made it easier than ever to raise funds for the Cancer Society Wellington in the lead-up to Daffodil Day. We have two online fundraising portals which will allow community groups to register and collect donations. 

There's no need to wait until 31 August to support Daffodil Day. Register your event, team, workplace, or yourself to become a Daffodil Day Virtual Collector today!

Register your school or ECE centre and create an online fundraising page. Set a goal and host an event or contest. It's easy to set up, share, and collect donations. You can see what other schools have got planned and track your progress.

Get in touch with Ione Slater, our Community Events Fundraising Coordinator, at IoneS@cancersoc.org.nz for support.

Host a Donation Box

We are making it easy - there's no form to fill this year! If your school or ECE centre is interested in hosting a collection box to support Daffodil Day, we encourage you to pick one up at our office.

Due to high demand for our volunteer driver services for cancer patients this winter, we are unable to deliver and pick boxes up this year. We appreciate your understanding and your continued support.  If picking up a box is not convenient for you, please think about supporting us through our online fundraising page

Order Fresh Flowers

This Daffodil Day, Cancer Society of Wellington has teamed up with Interflora to make it easier to order fresh daffodils. Orders can be placed online and flowers will still be delivered the week of Daffodil Day. Price and size are the same as last year - $55 for 50 daffs (includes shipping and GST).
