Volunteers needed in Tipperary for Lollipop Day

The Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) needs your help this February.  For the 17th annual Lollipop Day, the OCF is calling for volunteers in Tipperary on Friday, 23rd and Saturday, 24th of February 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 Friday, 23rd and Saturday 24th of February, pop down on your own or with friends, have some fun and help the OCF.

Chief Executive of the Oesophageal Cancer Fund, Noelle Ryan, said: “We are very fortunate to have an ever increasing number of dedicated volunteers, all of whom make Lollipop Day possible and a success every year. We never have enough volunteers so if anyone or any group is interested in helping out, please contact us on”

For more information on Lollipop Day; to volunteer, to make a donation, go to or to volunteer in Tipperary call Anne on 086 454 2713.
