Over 7,000 volunteers set to be out in force collecting funds across the country for Daffodil Day

For the first time since 2019, communities across Ireland will once again turn daffodil yellow as they take to the streets to raise funds and give hope to cancer patients and their families.

Cancer takes so much from so many. It takes big days, little days, and everything in-between. It replaces them with treatment days as well as recovery days. But together we have the power to take these days back from cancer.

97% of the charity’s income is from donations. Therefore, the money raised on Daffodil Day will help fund life-saving cancer research and support services including Night Nursing, Volunteer Driving, the Support Line, free counselling and the Society’s 13 Daffodil Centres.

There will be lots of activity taking place on Daffodil day – including:

  • Garden of Hope 

Every Daffodil Day the Irish Cancer Society ‘plants’ thousands of daffodils inscribed with their supporters’ personalised messages of hope, remembrance and aspiration. Every daffodil planted is one more show of kindness as the country comes together to support people affected by cancer.
