Marlborough Lines grows daffodils for Marlborough Cancer Society

24/05/2019

Some 30,000 daffodil bulbs have been planted at the Company’s Springlands substation on the corner of Murphys Road and Old Renwick Road.

These daffodils will not only be on display for members of the public, but will also be available for the Marlborough Cancer Society to use for Daffodil Day.

Marlborough Lines’ Managing Director, Ken Forrest, said:

“Marlborough Lines has long been a supporter of the Marlborough Cancer Society, most recently as principal sponsor of Relay for Life Marlborough 2019.

We were aware the Cancer Society was seeking more daffodils for Daffodil Day and given we had space available in the lawn at our Springlands substation we saw this as an opportunity to assist.

It is expected that once planted the daffodils will provide ongoing benefit to the Marlborough Cancer Society for years to come.”


Cancer Society Marlborough Manager, Hilary Gill, said:

“We are very excited about the generous support Marlborough Lines is giving to Daffodil Day, not only this year, but for many years to come.

Sadly, many people are touched by cancer in some way and the Cancer Society plays a critical role in our community supporting patients, their families and friends and also at a national level through ongoing research and health promotion.”


Ends.
