The Cancer Society in Whanganui has been badly let down by its usual supplier of daffodils and desperately needs some help for its annual appeal tomorrow.

The centre, which covers Whanganui, Rangitikei Waimarino, has no flowers for its annual street appeal and is looking for anyone who can help with donations.

Centre manager Jane Beamsley said they were "absolutely gutted."

They are looking for anyone to donate daffodils or maybe a farmer or gardener who has a lot growing and which can be donated to the annual appeal.


"We are still going ahead with the day as we still have merchandise and would still like to collect donations.

"But if anyone can help with the supply of daffodils that would be lovely."

"We just want to let the public know of our misfortune and to still give kindly if possible."

Jane can be contacted at 348 7402 or flowers can be dropped off at 3 Koromiko Rd.

Daffodil Day is the Cancer Society's main fundraiser for the year as well as providing an opportunity to raise awareness of cancer in New Zealand.
