Bloomin’ good


The Wakatipu was awash with daffodils this week for the Cancer Society’s major annual fundraiser.

About 50 volunteers – including, from left, Ngaire Hayes, Sue Farrell, Gill Wikstrom, Margaret James and Mary May – this week bunched up daffodils pre-purchased by local businesses.

About $13,000 was raised in Queenstown, $5000 in Frankton, $2000 in Arrowtown and an amazing $1800 in tiny Glenorchy.

Volunteers were also out on Friday manning Daffodil Day stands in Queenstown, Frankton and Arrowtown.

All daffodil money raised supports local families affected by cancer.
