Support Daffodil Day 2016. Look out for all the members of the UCD Rugby Club selling Daffodils this Thursday on behalf of the Irish Cancer Society

On Thursday, (March 10th) the players of UCD Rugby Club will be dispersed throughout the campus fundraising for the Irish Cancer Society by selling silk daffodils.

The players are drawn from the mens, womens and tag rugby teams and will visit each College and School with minimal disruption to staff and students.

We hope that you will all buy a daffodil on Thursday and show your support for a fantastic cause which affects so many of our lives. 

UCD’s Leinster and Ireland players Adam Byrne, Josh van der Flier, Luke Mc Grath and Garry Ringrose are pictured here in promoting the event.

Many thanks in anticipation of the cooperation and the generosity of your staff and students effecting a successful outcome to this fundraiser for the Irish Cancer Society.

About Daffodil Day

Daffodil Day is the biggest and longest running fundraising day for the Irish Cancer Society, Ireland’s national cancer charity.

On Daffodil Day thousands of volunteers around Ireland sell daffodil pins and flowers (on streets, in businesses, homes and shopping centres) to raise money for the Society’s free, nationwide services for those with, and affected by, cancer in Ireland.

Every single euro donated during Daffodil Day makes a difference to people with cancer and their families throughout Ireland. 

A vital part of the work of the Irish Cancer Society involves helping those at the end of their cancer journey to die in their own home, surrounded by those who love them.

This service is carried out by our Night Nurses who provide excellent care in the patients home, giving them comfort, familiarity and dignity in the last nights of their life.

The Irish Cancer Society is the only organisation which provides this service and receives no government funding.

To provide this essential service, they rely entirely on the generosity of our supporters so pick up your Daffodil on Thursday across campus and support a fantastic cause which affects so many of our lives.
