Paint the town yellow and help out the Irish Cancer Society

Alison Comyn

GREEN MIGHT be the traditional colour for St Patrick's Day, but be prepared for a yellow invasion the following day!

This March 18th-28th, The Irish Cancer Society-Drogheda Volunteers need help to 'Paint the Town Yellow', raising awareness for Daffodil Day and showing the entire country that people of Drogheda continue to support Daffodil Day.

'We are hoping that the town will be awash with yellow,' says committee member Gráinne Black.

'With almost all the town centre retailers, eateries, coffee shops, hairdressers, tattoo parlours committed already, we are hopeful of creating a bone fide glow in the run up to daffodil day!'

The local committee has yellow bunting, balloons, mugs, tea towels, bicycles, baskets, shoe boxes, glasses, chairs and various random yellow items suited to different shop windows, to give the famous colour-changing Black Bull a run for its money!

'We really want to thank the people of Drogheda for supporting our 2013 Daffodil Day Drogheda campaign, which made us the most successful community fundraising group in the country, raising over €56,000 last year and over 27 years in excess of €1.2million,' she added.

'This will be one of a great programme of events for the town, and we want to start off in style - yellow style!'

If you would like to get involved, contact any of the local committee members.
