Gilbert Linstead, General Manager of the Labrador Fishermen's Union Shrimp Company Limited presented a $20,000 cheque to the Canadian Cancer Society in support of its "Take A One Night Stand Against Cancer" campaign for Daffodil Place. This generous gift will help cover the costs associated with 200 nights for cancer patients who have to travel to St. John's for Cancer Care.

Daffodil Place, operated by the Canadian Cancer Society, alleviates the tremendous financial burden that comes with a cancer diagnosis. In addition to staying in a beautiful room, guests receive 3 home cooked meals per day, rides to and from their cancer appointments, nightly entertainment, supportive care and much more. It is a "home away from home" designed to reduce stress and allow cancer patients to focus on getting well.

The Labrador Fishermen's Shrimp Union Company Limited is based in Labrador where it operates five fish processing plants and employs hundreds of fish harvesters and plant workers. The company is owned by fishers of Lanse au Clair to Cartwright Region and has been in operation for over 35 years.
