Buckets of daffodils have started bringing in donations to the Cancer Society today.

As the sun warmed the footpaths on Esk St, in Invercargill, Leesa Brock and her mother Pam Brock were ready for the crowds.

They had been out since 9am and about 20 people had given money during the first 30 minutes, Pam said.

People were giving all amounts, from small change to substantial donations.

This is the fifth year she has been a volunteer on Daffodil Day and the first year for Leesa.

Pam said this Daffodil Day had a special meaning, after loosing her husband to cancer last year. Her mother also died of cancer four years ago and it was a disease that ran in the family.

''This is a very good cause,'' she said, acknowledging the support, and the number of people were were also affected by cancer.
