Faith City School held their own Daffodil Day on Friday to help raise money for the Cancer Society.

The event was organised by the school leadership team who organised a coin trail and a sausage sizzle.

Each classroom at the school had a "Turn White into Gold" folder where the aim was to cover each white daffodil centre with a gold coin.

Faith City principal Ruth McLay said the leadership team have organised a number of charity events this year.

"They organised a can drive for the food bank and gathered a good number of donations," she said.

Friday's events raised $384.90 to be donated to the Cancer Society.
