The adventures of Tin Man - Planting Hope

The Cancer Society Canterbury-West Coast is excited tin manto share with you a wonderful new Tin Man image kindly created by Tony Cribb. This Daffodil Day we have the pleasure of selling ‘Planting Hope’ Tin Man prints to help us support those going through a cancer journey.

When we asked if Tony would be willing to support this year’s Daffodil Day he was only too happy to help and jumped at the chance to create daffodil themed print.

Tony says, "Everybody knows somebody affected by cancer - including me. So it gives me the greatest pleasure to support the Cancer Society, because what they do makes a difference.

I spent a long time volunteering as a companion for Camp Quality, which brings fun, hope & happiness into the lives of children living with cancer - inspiring them to get on with being kids again. I loved this.

And then, at the age of 37 - I had my own adventure with a brain tumour, during which I had amazing support.

The Cancer Society is 'planting hope' - because of their health promotion, information, support and research. Plus, daffodils are really pretty."

Elizabeth Chesterman – Cancer Society Canterbury-West Coast Chief Executive says “Tin Man’s ‘Planting Hope’ says it all – Daffodil Day is all about offering care, comfort and hope to the 60 New Zealanders who ever day hear the words - you have cancer.“

The Cancer Society receives no direct funding from the government and relies solely on the support of the community and good people like Tony to continue our work and support for those in need.

Will you help us this Daffodil Day?

The prints are 30cm x 30cm and are $90 each.
