THE Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) is seeking volunteers for the 17th annual Lollipop Day, which takes place on Friday and Saturday, February 23 and 24, to help raise vital funds for oesophageal cancer.

Lollipop Day involves thousands of people selling lollipops (€2) nationwide, in an effort to raise vital funds for the Oesophageal Cancer Fund.   Without the generosity and support from volunteers, the OCF would not be able to provide the vital role it does in terms of awareness, research and better outcomes for patients and their families with this cancer in Ireland.

If you have a few hours to spare on February 23 or 24, you are asked to pop down on your own or with friends, have some fun and help the OCF.
