Daffodil Dip set for Easter Saturday

More than 300 people took part last year

The Daffodil Dip will take place for the second year on Easter Saturday in partnership with the Terrigal Ocean Swim Classic and Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club.

The Terrigal Ocean Swim Classic is a long-running community event which features 1km and 2km swims around Terrigal Beach.

Last year, for the first time, Cancer Council NSW and Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club partnered to bring The Daffodil Dip to life.

It is a 400m dip, paddle or swim around the ‘goldie’ buoy, or non-swimmers can happily wade in the safety zone and still be a part of the visual.

The daffodil is the symbol of hope, and each dipper will wear a vintage yellow swim cap to create an ocean of hope for cancer patients with a vision of bright yellow daffodil caps across Terrigal beach.

Cancer Council NSW Jaynie Moloney said more than 300 people participated last year.

“We raised over $21,000 and created a visual warm hug across Terrigal Beach, letting local cancer patients know that they are not alone,” she said.

“It was pretty special.”

Every dollar raised will help Cancer Council NSW invest in groundbreaking cancer research, empower people to reduce their own risk with prevention education, and provide essential support to everyone affected by cancer.

“It isn’t every day that we see two not-for-profit organisations partnering to bring the community together, and we’re just so grateful that we were able to partner with Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club to bring this event to the Central Coast community,” Moloney said.

The event will be held from 11am on Saturday, March 30.
