Get involved in Lollipop Day

Lollipop Day is the Oesophageal Cancer Fund's (OCF) national annual fundraising drive. On this day our Lollipop Day volunteers, young and old alike, take to the streets all over Ireland to sell lollipops and help educate the public about the symptoms of oesophageal cancer.

Businesses, retailers and schools can support the OCF by holding Lollipop Day events and/or by selling lollipops on their premises. Local community groups can get involved by organising events such as coffee mornings etc. The support of retailers such as SuperValu, Aldi and Dunnes Stores allows our volunteers to collect in their stores at designated times.
