Daffodils to bloom next week

Want to see cancer beaten?

Want to see cancer beaten?

Then pin your hopes on the Canadian Cancer Society – as in the daffodil pins the local unit will again be offering this year.

Each April for many years now the society has sold bunches and/or boxes of daffodils as a fund raiser to support cancer research and support services for those with cancer.

Last year the BC and Yukon branch decided to add something new, a daffodil pin, available for a donation. That went over so well that the daffodil pin will be seen across Canada in 2011.

Renate Cole of the local Cancer Society unit said the pins will be available in April at many businesses around town.

That will be in build up to Daffodil Pin Day on April 27, a day she hopes will see everyone wearing a pin to remember those who died from cancer and honour those battling the disease.

As for the traditional daffodils, they will be available in the City Centre Mall on March 30, March 31 and April 2.

If you want more information on how to get daffodil pins and daffodils, call Cole at 250-632-7359 or cell phone 250-639-3719.
