Hold a garden party - indoors!

ATTENTION office workers! Shake off those winter blues and bring some colour in your workplace this month, by hosting a Daffodil Day Garden Party!

The all-new Daffodil Day Garden Party lets social clubs and workmates grow hope in the office, all in support of cancer research.

Think astroturf and croquet, cucumber sandwiches and punch, gnomes and bunting, the Garden Party is your chance to bring spring forward in 2013 and add some warmth to your social club schedule.

Cancer Council Queensland spokeswoman Katie Clift, said any workplace can host a Garden Party for Daffodil Day this August.

"Garden Party is a new concept for Daffodil Day this year and we hope that it provides many workplaces across Queensland with a new way of enjoying Daffodil Day this month," she said.

"For workplaces with a social club, Garden Party is an easy way to raise funds for Daffodil Day through your planned social agenda and make a difference in the fight against cancer. 

"We rely on the generous support of everyday Queenslanders each Daffodil Day and we are calling out for their help once again.

"Cancer Council Queensland hopes to raise $1.9 million from Daffodil Day this year and we do need everyone's help to achieve this goal.

"The Cancer Council uses funds raised on Daffodil Day to invest around $30 million into cancer research each year.

"Our Cancer Council Helpline 13 11 20 will answer over 22,000 calls from patients and families across the State - a service we couldn't provide without the generosity of Queenslanders through events like Daffodil Day.
