A big thank you to the people from Ballybay and surrounding areas who donated so willingly and generously to make our Daffodil such a success.The €8053 raised so far will stay in our County to help the people in our area to get through Cancer. We couldn't have done it without you. We have a brilliant team of willing and loyal volunteers who have been helping out over the years, and this year we sent out an appeal for new Volunteers and we got a few more people to help our exsisting team out on the day. A big thank you to some volunteers who have retired after many years of helping out at all the Ballybay Daffodil Days for nearly 30 years. The Cake Sale and Coffee morning was a lovely way of meeting people and thank you to those who helped out and supported it, we are very grateful. Thanks to Pat O'Brien for the use of his premises for the coffee morning. Thanks to Ina Hagan who donated two lovely hampers. Paul Duffy and Rose Stuart were delighted to win them. We had great help from students for the Community College, who supplied lots of scones and helped out at the selling of the cakes, washing up, and serving the tea. A total of 60 volunteers was involved in some way or other and without those people, we simply couldn't have done it. These Volunteers sincerely love to give their time, energy, and enthusiasm to Daffodil Day.


This money provides services to all people who are affected by cancer in County Monaghan. Your support is always crucial to our outstanding success of Daffodil Day. Every Daffodil, keyring or other merchandise sold, supports programmes that prevent cancer, save lives from cancer and help people face cancer to cope and maintain the highest possible quality of life. The National Cancer Helpline 1800 200 700 is invaluable to people who need to talk things over and get advise.
The people in our area who donated in anyway, should be proud that they helped make Ballybay Daffodil Day 2018 a huge success. Ballybay Daffodil Day Co-Ordinators Joe and Dolores Maguire sincerely thank you for your continued support.
