Hundreds of Fastway Couriers across nine regional franchises in NSW, QLD and VIC are preparing to deliver bright, fresh daffodils free of charge as part of their annual commitment to the Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day this Friday, 23 August, 2013.
Sales of flowers and other merchandise on Daffodil Day helps the Cancer Council continue to provide vital information to all Australians, support to those affected by the disease and pave the way towards a cancer free future.
Richard Thame, CEO at Fastway Couriers Australia, says Daffodil Day is an important event in Fastway’s calendar.
“Every year, our Courier Franchisees give back to their communities by delivering hundreds of thousands of daffodils, for free, to the Cancer Council volunteers. It’s our way of supporting the fantastic work this charity does year in and year out,” said Richard.
“You can support Daffodil Day this year by purchasing flowers or merchandise from any one of the Cancer Council volunteers at supermarkets, train stations and workplaces around Australia this Friday.”
Melissa Harris, NSW Event Marketing Coordinator at the Cancer Council, said Fastway’s assistance is “a vital part of making sure the operation runs smoothly and that Daffodil Day’s supporters are able to raise funds to help beat cancer.
“The daffodil is the international symbol of hope and through bringing the daffodils to supporters across NSW, QLD and VIC, Fastway are bringing hope to those communities as well. We couldn’t do it without them,” said Melissa.
This year, Fastway Couriers at Northern Rivers, Newcastle, Central Coast, Sydney, Wollongong, Melbourne, Coffs Harbour, Gold Coast and Port Macquarie are participating in the initiative.
