Daffodil Day is coming, find out why students want to help

ST JOSEPH'S Banora students like Sophie Longworth have experienced cancer first hand and know how important it is for organisations like the Cancer Council are for raising funds and cancer research.

"My grandma had breast cancer and I saw family and friends dealing with that. Fundraising for the Daffodil Day and the Cancer Council is great for helping towards research and prevention of cancer," Sophie said.

The school will be selling daffodil badges and daffodils next Friday and Daffodil Day co-ordinator Sarah Rogall said there was nothing more inspiring than kids.

"The whole basis of Daffodil Day is to grow hope. There is nothing more hopeful than kids in my opinion," Mrs Rogall said.
