Together for Hospice, which represents 26 hospice and specialist palliative home care services throughout the country, today announced the launch of the 2021 Bewley’s Big Coffee Morning Social for Hospice.
The campaign was launched by journalist and broadcaster, Miriam O’Callaghan, who is calling on people across the country to support this important initiative by hosting a socially distanced or virtual coffee morning social on Thursday, 23 September.
Now in its 29th year, Together for Hospice alongside its long-term partner Bewley’s want to make this year’s event bigger and better than ever and are asking the public to get creative with their coffee creations and host a coffee morning social at a time that suits them – morning, noon, or night to raise funds!
Whether it’s morning mochas, lunchtime lattes or afternoon americanos, simply gather a group on Thursday, 23 September, and do coffee your way, to help raise much needed funds to support the work of hospices and specialist palliative home care services in your local community. Those taking part are encouraged to host socially distanced coffee morning socials and follow all government guidelines*.
In 2020, the fundraising event raised over €1 million for local hospices and specialist palliative homecare services nationwide and contributed to a significant fundraising milestone for the event which has raised over €40 million since its inception in 1992.
The funds raised have enabled local hospice groups to fund frontline staff such as nurses and healthcare assistants who provide specialist, high quality and loving care to patients and their families, fund on-going facility enhancements as well as purchasing crucial equipment. Funds raised locally stay local and go directly back into each local hospice service
