Description

Sunflower days began in 1990 and is one of the key national fundraising events for hospice services in Ireland.
Events are organised nationally with proceeds going to local voluntary hospice organisations. The aim is to raise support for local hospice services with all funds raised locally, staying local.
Sunflower Days developed to become an annual event taking place over two days in June each year.
Volunteers are recruited across the country to fundraise by selling Sunflower days pins, nail files and merchandise and by holding events.
Sunflower Days also offers an opportunity for local hospices to nominate their sunflower heroes, volunteers or hospice supporters who deserve special recognition. The Hospice Sunflower Heroes are acknowledged at a ceremony at the launch of Sunflower Days.
Celebrity patrons have included, RTE’s Mary Kennedy, Micheal O Muircheartaigh
