Dot’s Place in Bunbury was bright yellow on Friday as Cancer Council WA volunteers rallied together to raise much-needed money.

While the annual Daffodil Day fundraiser that typically takes over Victoria Street was cancelled due to COVID-19, volunteer Sue Suckling decided to run two stalls around Bunbury.

South West regional education officer Shenae Hawkins said the two Bunbury stalls raised more than $4800.

“We are so grateful for the generosity of the Bunbury community on Daffodil Day,” Mrs Hawkins said.

“Thank you to all that bought daffodils or made a donation.

“The money raised will provide more than hope to people affected by cancer; it will fund vital cancer research that is saving lives every day.”

This year, Daffodil Day celebrated 34 years of turning Australia yellow.

If you didn’t get down to a Daffodil Day stall on Friday and would still like to support Cancer Council WA, you can donate online at www.daffodilday.com.au or by phoning 1300 656 585.
