Daffodil Day

Daffodil Day symbolises hope for the 1 in 3 New Zealanders affected by cancer

Daffodil Day is the Cancer Society’s most important annual fundraiser and is held on the last Friday of August each year. 

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.


Money raised from Daffodil Day stays in the region where it was donated and is used to support patients with cancer and their and families,
fund breakthrough cancer research and help reduce the incidence of cancer for our children and grandchildren.

Your gift of time or money this Daffodil Day will make a real difference!

Thousands of everyday New Zealanders take to the streets each Daffodil Day to collect money for the Cancer Society.

We can usually find a venue and time slot that suits you; so if you have a few hours to spare, and would like to make a difference for people living with cancer please volunteer this Daffodil Day.
