Sunflower Days

The Irish Hospice Foundation will hold its national Sunflower Days collection for local hospice services next month on June 12 and 13 and urged the public to make the 2009 collection recession proof by continuing to give generously to support hospice care in their areas.

People will be able to support their local hospice service by buying a sunflower pin or sunflower seeds for €2.

Almost 30,000 people die annually in Ireland and over 6,000 people use hospice services every year. Hospice/palliative care involves the total care of patients and their families at the stage in a serious illness where the focus has switched from treatment aimed at cure to ensuring quality of life.
