Galway volunteers are being sought to help out on Lollipop Day this year to raise funds for the Oesophageal Cancer Fund.
The annual fundraiser takes place this Friday, 26 and Saturday, 27 February, to help raise vital funds for oesophageal cancer.
Lollipop Day involves thousands of people selling lollipops (€2) nationwide, in an effort to raise vital funds for oesophageal cancer. Without the generosity and support from volunteers, the OCF would not be able to provide the vital role it does in terms of awareness, research and better outcomes for patients and their families with this cancer in Ireland. If you have a few hours to spare on Friday and Saturday, pop down on your own or with friends, have some fun and help the OCF.
“We are very fortunate to have an ever increasing number of dedicated volunteers, all of whom make Lollipop Day possible and a success every year,” said Noelle Ryan, OCF Chairperson. “But we still need more volunteers so if anyone or any group is interested in helping out, please contact us on www.lollipopday.ie.”
