STAWELL - Students at Skene Street Specialist School are continuing their support for Daffodil Day today by selling merchandise.
The students have available pens, badges, teddy bears, wrist bands and much more, to help support the Cancer Council Victoria fundraiser.
By purchasing an item from Skene Street Specialist School, members of the community will be giving the gift of hope to those affected by cancer.
Cancer Council Victoria has been pleased with the generosity of Northern Grampians residents who put their hand up to become volunteers during Daffodil Day and help spread hope for the 87 people in the Northern Grampians region diagnosed with cancer each year.
The campaign's hugely popular bear Dougal, who challenges himself to a new profession each year, is a chef this year.
Cancer Council Victoria spokesperson Kate Delbridge said it's thanks to Victorians that the Cancer Council is able to continue its work and carry out its programs.
"Residents in Northern Grampians are wonderful supporters and local involvement is integral as every dollar raised goes towards cancer research, prevention and support services," she said.
"Last year we raised $1.74 million and this year I'd love us to exceed that target.
"Northern Grampians residents can help grow hope for better treatments, hope for more survivors and hope for a cancer-free future, by selling yellow on August 23."
