The Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) and Lollipop Day sponsor, Medtronic, would like to thank all our volunteers in Offaly who helped with Lollipop Day fundraising on February 27 and 28, without which Lollipop Day could not happen.

Lollipop Day is a volunteer led movement which relies on public support to keep research centres open and keep oesophageal cancer in the public consciousness.

Whether you organised a collection, volunteered, donated or bought a lolly on the day, you all made a difference and your support is greatly appreciated by OCF. The support of the Offaly Lollipop Day volunteers helped raise awareness of this cancer and its symptoms, while also helping to raise funds needed for research.

OCF also thanked all who joined the OCF to sing along with Dublin Gospel Choir or ‘liked’ the Facebook Page. All contributions will go towards raising awareness of oesophageal cancer and funding vital research. It really is true that a little lolly goes a long way.

Although Lollipop Day only happens for one weekend in the year the work goes on for 52 weeks and OCF hopes everyone will continue to remember them and promote their cause during the year.

If you would like to donate to the Oesophageal Cancer Fund, get involved in the Women’s Mini Marathon in June or get updates on events, you can log on to www.lollipopday.ie, follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook. Your help and support is greatly appreciated.
