On Daffodil Day, thousands of volunteers take to the streets selling flowers and daffodil pins to collect funds for the fight against cancer. Many other people organise coffee mornings and other fundraising events in their homes, local communities, and workplaces.
Daffodil Day isn’t just about raising funds though. It also keeps people talking about cancer – and by talking more about cancer, the sooner we are going to stop it in its tracks by knowing how to spot it early so it can be better treated, or how to avoid it completely by reducing the risk.
With 110 people being told they have cancer every day in Ireland, it’s more important than ever that we all know where we can turn for trusted information, advice and support during our cancer experience.
This year marks Daffodil Day’s 31st anniversary. You can join thousands of volunteers around Ireland selling daffodil pins and flowers on streets, in businesses, homes and shopping centres; or by hosting a Daffodil Day event to raise funds for the Society’s free, nationwide care services for those with, and affected by, cancer in Ireland. Let’s turn our communities yellow for Daffodil Day 2018.
