Daffodil Day

web banner dd2020 generic6

Daffodil Day symbolises all New Zealanders coming together in the fight against cancer.

Since 1990, this iconic event has inspired people to come together and support the Cancer Society's work. As well as providing an opportunity to raise awareness of cancer in New Zealand.

People all over Aotearoa can support Daffodil Day by volunteering, fundraising, or donating directly. These efforts go towards providing a wide range of support services, education and awareness programmes plus funding vital research into the causes and treatment of all types of cancer.  

This year, Daffodil Day is Friday 28 August and marks the 30th anniversary of Daffodil Day. The street appeal is taking place on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 August 2020.

There are many ways to get involved and show your support.

Whether it's by volunteering your time, organising a fundraising campaign, making a donation by phone, online, or to one of our street collectors every gift counts.

If you'd like to order fresh Daffodils to be delivered the week of Daffodil Day, please email us!
