MORE than 5500 bright yellow blooms were sold at Curtin University last Friday for Daffodil Day, the annual fundraising event for the Cancer Council.

Every day, around 350 Australians are diagnosed with cancer and more than 1.1 million have survived or continue to live with the diagnosis.

Curtin student and community development co-ordinator Maureen Meredith said participating in the charity drive was a way to bring the campus together.

“Daffodil Day at Curtin provides the opportunity for students and staff to work together to raise money to fund research, provide support for families, education and prevention programs, a worthy cause,” she said.

“Curtin becomes alive with a sea of yellow as fresh cut daffodils are sighted all around campus. Students and staff all working together to find a cure for cancer. “
