Daffodils help to paint Cooma yellow

There was a splash of bright yellow to brighten Centennial Plaza on Friday for the Cancer Council's annual Daffodil Day.

A merchandise table selling all things yellow from mini-soccer balls to pens was set up in the Plaza to raise money for cancer research, prevention, information and support services. With the theme of 'Paint the Town Yellow' the table was hard to miss.

Cancer Council NSW community events coordinator Paula Jones was joined by Cathy Guion and Emma Green from The Hub youth centre to spread awareness and sell merchandise.

This year the Cancer Council aims to raise $9.2 million nationally. It is the largest national fundraising event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.

In Cooma and the Snowy River area, donated funds are good use Cancer Council community relations coordinator southern region Mia Parson said.

"Through your support Cancer Council NSW is able to provide services such as the Cancer Council Helpline, Understanding Cancer publications, free counselling services and financial assistance," she said.
