Volunteers required for Hospice Sunflower Days

Volunteers required for Hospice Sunflower Days

By Mary Dennehy

VOLUNTEERS are needed for this June’s Hospice Sunflower Days, and once again every euro raised locally, stays locally.

One of Ireland’s longest established charity fundraisers, Hospital Sunflower Days will take place on June 7 and 8 – with volunteers needed to sell sunflowers over the course of the two days.

Hospice Sunflower Days call for volunteers

The sunflower campaign aims to raise much needed funds for hospices and specialist palliative home care services across the country.

This enables services to continue to provide person-centred, holistic and loving care to patients and their loved ones free of charge.

Funds raised through the campaign will be used to directly support hospices and home care services allowing them to purchase new equipment, support frontline posts, upgrade current facilities and continue to provide a vital service.

Originally from Clondalkin and now living in Knocklyon, Mary Kennedy, Hospice Sunflower Days Ambassador and RTE broadcaster, said: “Volunteers, or our Hospice Heroes as we call them, play a crucial role in helping to raise funds nationwide.

“Hospice and Specialist Palliative Homecare Services nationally are calling on you to volunteer a few hours of your time over the course of the two days to ensure that these palliative services can continue to be provided to those in need and remember every euro raised locally, stays locally!”

Anybody interested in volunteering is encouraged to contact their local hospice or specialist palliative home care service.
