In a bid to raise vital funds for local hospice and homecare services, ‘Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice Together with Bewley’s’ launched today.
The fundraising initiative is calling for as many people as possible to host a coffee morning on Thursday, 14 September to ‘perk up’ vital funds.
Celebrating 25 years of coffee mornings, it is hoped that Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice Together with Bewley’s will raise a much needed €2 million for local hospice and homecare services nationwide to meet with growing demands for the services.
The campaign which launched this morning at at Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services in Dublin’s Harold’s Cross, is supported by a host of celebrities.
Brendan and Domhnall Gleeson, Boyzone star Keith Duffy, comedian Mario Rosenstock, Clelia Murphy and Dr. Ciara Kelly, are all asking people nationwide to support this important campaign by hosting or attending a coffee morning. If you can’t attend a coffee morning simply text COFFEE to 50300 and donate €4*.
According to Mark Saunders, brand director with Bewley’s, the company is proud to have been supporting the campaign for the last 25 years. “As an Irish family company originally founded on Quaker principles,” Saunders said, “community is very much at the heart of Bewley’s and each year we continue to see the importance of hospice and homecare services around Ireland and the real and meaningful difference the money raised makes to communities locally.”
