The Impossible “Daffodil” Market will be held on Sunday 14 August from 4pm until 9pm at The Edwards Bar, on Parry St in Newcastle West. Market entry is free with gold coin fundraising donation encouraged.
The Impossible Market is all about hope and overcoming the impossible, so it comes as no surprise that they will be joining forces with the Cancer Council to help raise funds and awareness for Daffodil Day. With stalls promoting wellbeing, motivation, love and wholesomeness, the event on Sunday 14 August will be as much an official fundraiser as a fun family-friendly day out.
Sadly, cancer is a part of everyday life for many of us, with 1 in 2 Australian men, and 1 in 3 Australian women expected to be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Daffodil Day raises vital funds for, and awareness about, the work of Cancer Council, including research, patient support services and prevention programs, helping support the 350 Australians diagnosed with cancer each day.
The Impossible “Daffodil” Market will be spreading the love in support of this cause, with free face painting for the kids, bouquets of fresh daffodils and a mega-raffle full of prizes donated from the boutique vendors.
Promoting healthy lifestyles and wellness will be a key focus, so you can expect to find friendly faces such as Ennia’s from Fleurette Aromatherapy. With scents designed to relax, unwind and recover, her handmade blends are made right here in the Hunter Valley using nature’s healing oils from leaves, roots, flowers and to help re-centre us in our busy lives. The collection includes 100% pure and chemical free room mists, bath soaks, pulse points, body balm, body oils and lifestyle blends.
The event will also feature yoga and empowerment workshops, with Cat Mead of Two Feet Yoga facilitating a morning yoga session focussed on balance, strength and calming flows. A second session will then explore the power of breathing with Emma Thomson from The Love Me Mission guiding participants through the principles of traditional thoracic breath and various health benefits that mindful breathing can assist with, including stress management, mental health and hormonal function.
Cancer prevention campaigns are helping people become better informed about detection and prevention, so we encourage you to get out to raise funds, awareness and spread some feel- good vibes with your friends and family. If you can’t be there in person, you can also show your support direct to the Cancer Council by dedicating a daffodil to support those affected by cancer.
