The hospice movement in Ireland is calling on the public to support their local hospice and give generously on Hospice Sunflower Days next week. The national Hospice Sunflower Days collection for local hospice services takes place on Friday June 14 and Saturday June 15. People can support their local hospice service by purchasing various pieces of Sunflower merchandise including sunflower pins or sunflower seeds for €2 each from collectors on the streets of cities, towns and villages around the country.
Hospice Sunflower Days is a major source of income for hospices and voluntary hospice groups countrywide. The Irish Hospice Foundation coordinates the event on behalf of the hospice movement but all of the funds raised locally, stay locally.
There is an urgent need for volunteers to sell sunflower pins and anyone who has a few hours to spare on June 14 or 15 is asked to please check on www.sunflowerdays.ie for further details on how to volunteer.
