Cancer Society Daffodil Day

16 August 2017

Daffodil Day is the Cancer Society’s annual flagship event and one of the most important fundraising
and awareness campaigns in the country.

ANZ has been the proud principal sponsor of Daffodil Day for 27 years now. Nationally, employees have managed to raise a massive $18.8 million to fund vital research and support services that help those suffering from cancer.

The daffodil is one of the first flowers of spring, whose bright yellow blooms remind us of the joys the new season will bring. It represents the hope there is for the 1 in 3 New Zealanders affected by cancer. There will be five collection points around Wanaka and districts on Friday 25th August that will be selling fresh daffodils.

Also as part of the fundraising, ANZ will be hosting a movie night to see ‘The Big Sick’ on Wednesday 23rd August at 6.00pm. The event is kindly supported by Cinema Paradiso and Gibbston Valley Wines and promises to be a fun night. Come and visit the ANZ branch today to buy your ticket (limited tickets available).

In addition, the wonderful Wanaka Lions ladies will be making some scrumptious pikelets on 24th and 25th August. Pre-orders need to be made to the Wanaka branch by Monday 21st August – contact 03 443 9605 to place your order today!

The team will also have some raffles running in branch from now until the end of August. Please join in and help make it another successful fundraising effort for this important cause.
