Corporate garden parties put a spring in Daffodil Day

SHAKE off those winter blues and bring a splash of summer happiness back into your workplace next month by hosting a Daffodil Day Garden Party.

The latest Daffodil Day event allows for social clubs and workmates to get together and support cancer research.

Cancer Council Queensland spokeswoman Katie Clift is encouraging party holders to think astroturf and croquet, cucumber sandwiches and punch and gnomes and bunting in an effort to bring spring forward in 2013 and add some warmth to social club calendars.

Ms Clift said any workplace can host a Garden Party for Daffodil Day this August.

"Garden Party is a new concept 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."
