Chance to be part of Lollipop Day

The Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) needs your help for the 19th annual Lollipop Day. On the last weekend in February, Friday 28th and Saturday 29th the national charity will host its fundraising and awareness day in Louth to help raise funds for Oesophageal Cancer across the country.

Lollipop Day involves thousands of people selling lollipops (€3) nationwide, in an effort to raise vital funds for the Oesophageal Cancer Fund.

Without the generosity and support from volunteers, the OCF would simply not be able to provide the vital role it does in terms of highlighting symptoms awareness, raising funds for innovative research into improved treatment outcomes for patients, and supporting anyone affected by this niche cancer in Ireland.

The OCF has contributed €1.8 million in funding for Oesophageal Cancer research.

If you have a few hours to spare on Friday, 28th and/or Saturday, 29th of February, they would love you to volunteer either on your own or with friends. Register at https://www.ocf.ie/register-for-lollipop-day-2020/
