The Irish Cancer Society have issued an emergency appeal due to their annual ‘Daffodil Day’ fundraiser being down 50% because of rain, wind and snow. Local organisers in Fethard usually experience terrific support selling Daffodils outside the post office and local supermarkets with the much appreciated help from the transition year students at Patrician Presentation Secondary School. Due to the severe weather this year many people didn’t get the opportunity to support this most important appeal.
The Irish Cancer Society is seriously in need of this funding for vital care and support programmes for people living with and affected by cancer. As a result they have set up four ways you can still support ‘Daffodil Day’: (1) Make a donation online at www.cancer.ie; (2) Text Daff now to 50300 to donate €4 (100% of your donation will go to supporting programmes); (3) Buy a virtual daffodil on the Irish Cancer Society’s Facebook page; (4) Lodge your gift through any AIB to account number 09105304, and sort code 931098.
The local organisers would like to thank everyone who already supported Daffodil Day in Fethard and would appeal to those who didn’t have the chance to consider using one of the options above . . . it’s never too late!
