One of our lovely volunteers just returned from picking up leftover Daffodil Day merchandise from Jenny at First National. Jenny informed her that Southern Cross Credit Union was integral to their success in raising over $2,000. Thank you for supporting this event. I believe you also hosted a Pink event today- thank you also for that. It’s wonderful to have the support of local businesses. Funds raised help us support local cancer patients and their families and also contribute to research projects and advocating to government.
