Fun fundraisers for Daffodil Day

Bingo, a quiz night and a vintage car rally are some of the events being planned to mark Daffodil Day in the Mahurangi/Kaipara area this year.

Daffodil Day is about showing support for cancer research and awareness, and cancer societies who are doing their best with volunteers to raise funds. While the day officially falls on August 31, fundraising events are being held throughout the month.

Tickets are $25 per person, which includes nibbles, dinner and entertainment. She says $10 from every ticket goes to the Cancer Society.

The Daffodil Rally & Car Show, organised by the Waitemata, North Shore and Wellsford/Warkworth branches of the Vintage Car Club of NZ will be held on August 20.

The rally will start at the North Shore Airfield and the cars will make their way to Matakana for lunch and a public display next to the school from midday onwards.
