Coast turns yellow for Daffodil Day's worthy cause

THE Sunshine Coast turned a bright shade of yellow yesterday as the community opened its wallet for Daffodil Day.

The annual fundraiser for the Cancer Council saw fresh daffodils sold by the score and daffodil pins adorning shirtfronts and blouses across the Coast.

"A bright splash of yellow does more than light up the community - it means we are taking active steps to beat cancer and to show our support to those affected," Cancer Council spokeswoman Esther Attewell said.

"Small gestures like wearing a pin, purchasing merchandise or volunteering makes a big difference to those people in the Sunshine Coast community who are going through a cancer journey by showing they are not alone."

Among those doing their bit for the cause was Dr Lydia Thurston (pictured) who stocked up on daffodils at Nambour General Hospital.
