Boyne Valley Honey and Down Syndrome Ireland have begun their annual Honey Days fundraising event, which runs throughout the month of October. The event aims to grow public support for the campaign, which helps thousands of people with Down syndrome.
This month, hundreds of volunteers and supporters across Ireland will be selling mini pots of Pure Natural Boyne Valley Honey for €2. Celebrity chef Andrew Rudd and presenter Louise Duffy have also supported the campaign, appearing on Drury Lane in Dublin city and cooking up recipes using Boyne Valley Honey, in promotion of Honey Days 2014.
Rudd said, "I am absolutely delighted to support this campaign, it is such a good cause and I would encourage everyone to get involved by purchasing one of the pure natural honey pots." The campaign is currently in its nineteenth year, and is one of Down Syndrome Ireland’s largest campaigns.
Pat Clarke, CEO of Down Syndrome Ireland, said Honey Days is not simply intended to raise funs, but also to raise public awareness of the potential and achievements of those with Down syndrome.
