The Irish Cancer Society is seeking new Daffodil Day volunteers in Limerick.
This is due to Limerick woman, Maura O’Flaherty stepping down as coordinator of the event after 30 years.
The Ennis Road native raised a phenomenal €500,000 for the fight against cancer through the years.
“In the past 20 years we have seen a 20% increase in the number of people in Ireland surviving a cancer diagnosis.
“Without the passion, dedication and goodwill of people like Maura I don’t think we would be in a position to say this, so we are incredibly thankful to her for all her efforts,” said Irish Cancer Society Community Fundraiser Lorraine Toner.
Daffodil Day, proudly supported by Boots Ireland, will take place on March 27th and is a crucial fundraiser in the Irish Cancer Society’s fight against cancer.
Funds raised on the day go towards supporting nurses, researchers and volunteers across Ireland whilst providing much-needed free support services to relieve worry and stress on cancer patients and their families at one of the most difficult times in their lives.
The Irish Cancer Society will be holding a morning tea to recognise and thank Maura for her dedication and to provide information for anyone interested in finding out more about Daffodil Day, the Irish Cancer Society or how they can make a difference.
The event will take place at 11am on January 28 at the South Court Hotel, and is open to all.
