Daffodil Day 2012 marks the return of the Garden of Hope. The Garden of Hope www.gardenofhope.ie is a special place to show your support for anyone touched by cancer In Ireland. You can leave a message to remember a loved one lost to cancer, celebrate a cancer survivor or simply to show your support for a loved one with cancer.
This year there will also be four gardens of hope ‘planted’ in the following locations; Phoenix Park, Dublin; Bishop Lucey Park, Cork; Kennedy Park, Galway and the People’s Park, Limerick. These gardens will be ‘planted’ with thousands of paper daffodils, sent to the Society by members of the public with handwritten messages and dedications to loved ones.
In 2010 Dell Ireland became the Irish Cancer Society’s lead partner for Daffodil Day for a three year period until 2013. In addition to providing financial support Dell’s 2,300 employees are supporting the campaign by volunteering time and expertise to the Irish Cancer Society in the lead up to Daffodil Day and on the day itself.
