Pinning hopes on €1m for hospices
TELEVISION presenter Mary Kennedy urged the public to buy a sunflower pin to help raise more than €1m for hospice care.
Thousands of volunteers will be selling items from €2 sunflower pins to nail files on Sunflower Days -- June 10 and 11.
All the monies raised remain in the local area to fund home care services and hospices.
Ms Kennedy was joined by Samara Jones (9) and Tara O'Sullivan (9) at the launch of the 21st anniversary of Sunflower Days, which also honours those who work tirelessly in hospices and raise vital monies for care services.
