The flagship fundraising day for the Irish Cancer Society, Daffodil day, returns to the streets of the county for the first time since 2019 on Friday, March 25.
This year, the Cancer Society will be featuring the story of Ballyshannon man, Paul McLoone, on all its social media platforms when promoting awareness of Daffodil Day events.
Daffodil Day is the Cancer Society’s most important fundraising event of the year and the money raised goes directly to funding critical supports including support line, free counselling, Night Nurse services to provide end of life care, and financial support for families of children affected by cancer.
People are being asked to take part and take back from cancer in any way they can this daffodil day.
As well as donating at cancer.ie and volunteering to help fundraise, they can purchase items from the daffodil day online shop and take part in a steps challenge.
Daffodil Day is returning to our streets and we are so excited - only 41 days to go!!— Irish Cancer Society (@IrishCancerSoc) February 11, 2022
Thanks to the wonderful Donna Marie, her gorgeous family and Claire Byrne for helping us spread the word in style
