A team of cyclists from Bewley’s is set to hit the road for a 97km charity cycle in aid of Ireland’s Biggest Coffe Morning for Hospice. The team of 13, led by Bewley’s MD Jason Doyle, will visit three Dublin hospice facilities on their journey, in order to highlight the work they do and raise much-needed funds. Each Hospice stop along the way will receive a €1,000 donation from Bewley’s. The locations include Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services, Harold’s Cross, St. Francis Hospice, Blanchardstown and St. Francis Hospice, Raheny
Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice Together with Bewley’s is currently celebrating twenty-seven years. As always, the charity is calling on the people of Ireland to host a coffee morning this Thursday 19 September to help raise vital funds for their local hospice. It is hoped that this year’s events, held in homes and businesses across the country, will raise a much-needed €2 million for Hospices across Ireland, to meet growing demands for the service.
“It’s been a privilege for Bewley’s to lend its support as sole sponsor for Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice for the past 27 years,” says Jason Doyle. “Community and people are at the heart of Bewley’s, and caring for people in the local community is what hospice services are all about.
“Our annual cycle has been a fantastic way for us to not only support the campaign,” he said, “but for members of the Bewley’s team to come together and see first-hand the vital care services provided by our local hospices, really highlighting the importance of the campaign in raising funds for those who need it most.”
