Little business man Louis Chambers, 5yrs from Bray, Co. Wicklow is pictured planning his fundraiser for Daffodil Day 2015 with a little help from Dell team members Shauna Carroll from Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford and Kevin Brown from Goatstown, Co Dublin to promote the Irish Cancer Society’s 28th Daffodil Day on Friday March 27.

BUSINESSES in Kerry are being asked to play a part in this year’s upcoming Daffodil Day which this year is set to take place on Friday, March 27.

The Irish Cancer Society along with Dell Ireland are hoping that more businesses in Kerry and members of the public around the country will step up to the plate once again this year and support the cause.

There is a target figure of up to €3.5 million that they hope to raise for the charity.

“We urge other businesses to come on board and support Daffodil Day 2015,” said Liam Halpin, General Manager of Dell Ireland.

“There’s plenty of ways to get involved, from team members donating their time to take part in street collections, through to company fundraisers such as bake sales and mini golf competitions. Let’s work together to help the Irish Cancer Society reach its fundraising targets and continue to make a difference in the lives of those with cancer, along with their friends and family.” he continued.

In 2014, there were over 400 companies around Ireland that signed up with the Irish Cancer Society to support Daffodil Day. They ran fundraisers in over 800 locations, raising a massive €376,000 to show that they care.

Different ways in which companies and businesses can help to support the cause include:

• Sell boxes of daffodils and daffodil day merchandise in your building
• Arrange a fundraising event in your office
• Volunteer some time on Daffodil Day

Daffodil Day is the biggest and longest running fundraising day for the Irish Cancer Society, Ireland’s national cancer charity. These services are provided for those with and affected by cancer in Ireland.
