Broome’s Daffodil Day fundraising efforts have topped previous years’ thanks to the team at First National Real Estate Broome, the Broome Florist and our generous community!!!
On Friday 25th August the First National team were selling fresh daffodils, raffle tickets (for hampers donated from the Broome florist) and Cancer council merchandise at the Boulevard and Paspaley shopping centres.
Daffodil Day has become quite a tradition for First National over the last 15 years as well as dedicated pre-primary students who make beautiful handmade paper daffodils to decorate Chinatown. The daffodils are normally made from the enthusiastic hands of the students of Cable Beach Pre-Primary School with the support of one of the teachers Sandra Jefferys. Sandra is away on leave this year so sadly she was not able to be involved. This year for the first time we had the children from the Roebuck Primary School making our Daffodils who were delighted to be asked to be involved.
This year they raised $3,553 which could not have been achieved without everyone’s help and the great community spirit we have in Broome. Rachael Abernethy from First National Broome said “it’s a delight to be involved in such a worthy cause. We can’t give up hope for a cancer free future.”
The team at First National Broome are busy at it again with their second community fundraising event for the year. On Friday 1st September they organise and host a Broome Charity Golf Event raising money for the Kyle Andrews Foundation. Although this year has been harder than most in collecting donations and sponsorship Rachael said “it’s wonderful to see so many committed golf enthusiasts who return each year to help make this event a success. We thank you all.”
If you have a business and would like to offer a donation for next year please email Rachael Abernethy so she can be in contact closer to the time [email protected]
