Today is Daffodil Day – the Irish Cancer Society’s biggest fundraiser which normally takes place each year in March and raised almost 4 million euros to support cancer patients and their loved ones by providing free advice and support, as well as by funding life-saving cancer research.
Usually, on Daffodil Day, thousands of volunteers take to the streets selling flowers and daffodil pins to collect funds for the fight against cancer. Many others organise coffee mornings and other fundraising events in their homes, local communities, and workplaces.
This year due to Covid-19 restrictions, Daffodil Day will be different – and more important than ever. The public is being encouraged to visit www.cancer.ie to make a donation or to text 50300 to donate 6 euros to the Irish Cancer Society.
