Sunflower Day - June 12th 2021

The annual sunflower Day will take place on the 12th of June. Like many of our usual events, it will not take place in the normal manner. The street collections will not take place this year due to covid restrictions. It is one of our big fundraisers, which is part of a national campaign. Two years ago, we raised over €40,000, all of which stayed here to support Kerry Palliative Care services. 

This is year it will be slightly different. In an effort to keep the tradition alive we are going to have a Virtual sunflower garden. 

We have an iDonate page with the option to donate if you can all. The idea being that we will add a sunflower on your behalf in memory of a loved one or just someone you are thinking of this time of year.We will write your message on the back of the printed card and add them to the garden which will be on the grounds of the Inpatient Unit.

We hope to have sunflower pins in selected shops around the County in the week leading up to the big day.

We are hugely grateful to you all for the wonderful support and the foundation is truly blown away by the generosity that has been shown over the last 30 years. Especially this last year which has been a hugely difficult one for so many charities.

All we can say is Thank You.
