More about The Cancer Society
The Cancer Society receives no direct government funding and relies on donations and sponsorships.
Over 12,000 people volunteer each year for the Cancer Society, over 3,500 of them regularly!
Since the service began in 2007, the Cancer Society's free information helpline (0800 CANCER) has had over 90,000 calls, and its staff of cancer nurses have spent over 4,200 hours providing support and advice to New Zealanders affected by cancer.
The Cancer Society provides accommodation close to all major hospitals in New Zealand, and last year it provided over 49,000 bed nights.
Donations help fund the Cancer Society's services such as petrol for the volunteer driving service available to cancer patients in New Zealand. Last year, Cancer Society volunteers drove over 1 million kilometres getting patients to treatment (1,151,998 kilometres to be precise). They made over 19,000 trips and transported over 4,700 patients.
Daffodil Day has been the Cancer Society's biggest fundraiser for over 28 years nationally, and ANZ has been its Principal Sponsor from the start.
People wanting to donate to progress the research and support those affected by cancer can do so by donating directly with a street collector, at any ANZ branch, or online at daffodilday.org.nz
