Daisy Dander

Feature Image

Would your nursery or school like to take a ‘Dander’ and support local children living with cancer.


Daisy Dander is a sponsored walk and is the perfect event for nursery and school aged children. It can be as long or as short a dander as you would like and it can take place anytime throughout the year. You can decide a location which is convenient to you, whether it be the playground or local park.


Free Fundraising Pack


Each nursery will receive a free fundraising pack once they register which will include;

  • Posters to promote your Dander
  • Sponsor forms
  • Arrows to mark out your route
  • Certificate and daisy sticker for each child
  • Balloons to decorate your venue
  • Tips for a top dander

Rebecca, our School’s Fundraiser, can also come to your school or nursery to chat to the children about the work of the charity or afterwards for a cheque presentation.


Hear What Schools Say


St Columba’s Nursery School in Kilrea are one nursery who have taken part in Daisy Dander several times. Nursery Teacher Paula McCormick explains why they choose to support Cancer Fund for Children.

“Five years ago, as Nursery teacher at St Columba’s I decided to choose a charity to support as part of our school initiative of giving back to others less fortunate. We decided to choose Cancer Fund for Children. Our Nursery children and parents supported us eagerly and took part in a different activities to raise money for the wonderful charity, Daisy Dander being one of our main events.

Little did I realise how close this charity would impact in my families’ life when my six year old nephew was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour in September 2013. It is more important now than ever that our Nursery and our communities support charities like Cancer Fund for children.”
