Lollipop people needed in Meath!

The Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) needs your help this February!  With just one month to go until the 13th annual Lollipop Day, the OCF is calling for more volunteers in Meath on Friday, 28nd February and Saturday, 1st March to help raise vital funds for oesophageal cancer.

Lollipop Day involves thousands of people selling lollipops (€2) nationwide, in an effort to raise vital funds for oesophageal cancer.  Without the generosity and support from volunteers, the OCF would not be able to provide the vital role it does in terms of awareness, research and better outcomes for patients and their families with this cancer in Ireland. If you have a few hours to spare on Friday, 28nd of February or Saturday, 1st March, pop down on your own or with friends, have some fun and help the OCF!

“We are very fortunate to have an ever increasing number of dedicated volunteers, all of whom make Lollipop Day possible and a success every year,” said Noelle Ryan, OCF chairperson.  “But we still need more volunteers so if anyone or any group is interested in helping out, please contact us on www.lollipopday.ie.”

For more information on Lollipop Day; to volunteer, to make a donation, go to www.lollipopday.ie or to volunteer in Meath call Aisling Hall on 086 4542713.
