Trailer carries hope's symbol

STANDING in the backyard of an ordinary Warwick home was a conventional refrigerated trailer which had been put to an extraordinary use.

The trailer held 16 boxes, the 16 boxes made up 30 bundles and the 30 bundles contained 480 bunches.

Those 480 bunches made up, finally, a total of 4800 daffodils.

The daffodils, a symbol for hope, will be sold throughout Warwick today for Cancer Council's Daffodil Day.

Event manager Kay Wilson said: "Every year you see a higher incidence of people surviving cancer ... thanks to research.

"We want to help people, even if it's only just one person."

Merchandise such as teddy bears, pens and badges are also available, and all proceeds will go to the Cancer Council Queensland.

You can buy a daffodil today at Retravision, Criterion Cellar and some stores in Rose City shoppingworld.
