The Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF ) and Lollipop Day sponsor, Medtronic, would like to thank all the volunteers in Westmeath who helped with Lollipop Day fundraising on February 27 and 28 this year, 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. The support of the Westmeath Lollipop Day volunteers helped raise awareness of this cancer and its symptoms, while also helping to raise funds needed for research.
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
