How does the money I raise support cancer patients?
The Covid-19 pandemic has left people affected by cancer needing our support now more than ever. The pandemic has changed so much for people living with and beyond cancer – it has meant increased risk to their health, increased isolation for those cocooning and added worry and stress for patients and their loved ones.
Cancer is still here and with your help and donations, so are we, every step of the way. Your donation today will help ensure people with cancer have access to crucial supports at this difficult time including free counselling, transport to and from chemotherapy appointments and advice and information through our Cancer Information Service.
Please take part today to ensure we can continue to be there for every cancer patient that needs us during this worrying time.
Your support has a real impact! “When my husband was first diagnosed, the Daffodil Centre provided me with information and booklets on his condition. The Daffodil Centre nurse gave me support and comfort. He is now in Stage 4, I still go to the Daffodil Centre for a chat, reassurance, and I am always made feel welcome and leave feeling supported and reassured by the Daffodil Centre nurse who also provided me with additional information and services. The Daffodil Centre is a vital service to cancer sufferers and their families.” – Daffodil Centre user.
How do virtual collections work?
Virtual collections are a simple way for you to raise money this Daffodil Day. Whilst we are unable to hold our normal street sales and bucket collections, with a virtual collection you can still take donations from friends, family and your community safely and easily. Simply set up the page, share the link, and people can donate directly to your online page where you will see every euro you have raised in support of cancer patients and their families.
How do I promote my virtual collection?
As your virtual collection happens entirely online, it’s easy to promote it via your social media channels or via email or WhatsApp. You should post about your virtual collection as soon as you set it up and then post regular updates about how much you’ve raised so far and what your target is. Check out our social media tools to help give your virtual collection a bit of a boost.
