Sunflower Days is a major national fundraising event for hospices in Ireland. While the event takes place on a national scale, all Sunflower Days’ activities in Sligo, Leitrim and South Donegal are organised by North West Hospice and the organisation’s team of volunteers and supporters.
This means that every euro raised in this region for Sunflower Days goes directly towards maintaining the North West Hospice palliative care service.
Bernadette McGarvey of North West Hospice said “This is a major, annual fundraising event for North West Hospice. We have fresh sunflower plants for sale again which proved hugely popular last year as well as sunflower pins and tokens for supermarket trolleys.
“We’re very grateful to everyone at Loughan House for partnering with us on Sunflower Days again and for all their hard work and commitment with the Sunflower Project.” Cathryn O’Leary of North West Hospice added “We are extremely lucky to have incredible volunteers all around the North West region who are giving their time to help out with Sunflower Days.
“It is thanks to them we’ll have sunflowers available throughout the North West this year including Sligo town, Ballymote, Ballisodare, Tubbercurry, Enniscrone and in Tullaghan, Kinlough, Carrick-on-Shannon and Manorhamilton in Co. Leitrim. “Further details of where sunflowers are available can be found on our website. We hope everyone in the North West will shine bright and support our hospice by wearing a sunflower for Sunflower Days this year.”
