THE NATIONAL HOSPICE SUNFLOWER DAYS COLLECTION FOR LOCAL HOSPICE SERVICES TAKES PLACE ON FRIDAY, 9TH JUNE AND SATURDAY, 10TH JUNE 2017
People will be able to support their local hospice service by purchasing various pieces of Sunflower merchandise including sunflower pins or sunflower seeds from collectors on the streets of cities, towns and villages across Ireland.
Hospice Sunflower Days is one of the biggest fundraising events for local hospice services in Ireland. Thousands of volunteers will take to the streets on June 9th and 10th to sell sunflower merchandise in a bid to raise €1 million for hospice services. The IHF coordinates the event on behalf of the hospice movement but all of the funds raised locally, stay locally.
So keep an eye out for Sunflower collectors around the county over that weekend, and please give as generously as you can!

ON BEHALF OF ALL THE LOCAL HOSPICE GROUPS HUGE THANKS FOR YOUR GENEROUS SUPPORT!
