It’s time to take a break, have a coffee and join in Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice Together with Bewley’s today to help raise vital funds for local hospices & homecare services.
We are celebrating twenty-five years of coffee mornings, Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice Together with Bewley’s will aim to raise a much needed €2 million for local hospice & homecare services nationwide to meet with growing demands for the service.
There are so many wonderful people who help to make today so special; our Coffee Morning Hosts, their guests, the staff, volunteers and patients of hospice & homecare services, our Ambassadors and our sponsor, Bewley’s. Some of Ireland’s most famous faces, including Brendan and Domhnall Gleeson, Boyzone star Keith Duffy, comedian Mario Rosenstock, Westlife star Markus Feehily, Clelia Murphy and Dr. Ciara Kelly, are asking people nationwide to support this important campaign by attending a local coffee morning.
Ambassador Brendan Gleeson said, “As someone who has seen first-hand the vital work hospices do in local communities it is an honour to support this campaign again this year. Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning For Hospice Together With Bewley’s is a cause close to my heart as I have been personally touched by the amazing work done in St. Francis Hospice. I urge people across Ireland to support the campaign and attend a local coffee morning this Thursday 14th September.
Pat Quinlan, Chair of the Voluntary Hospice Groups said, “Each year, hospice and homecare services across Ireland are responding to growing demands for their services and endeavoring to do so to the highest standards. The nature of hospice care is such that we must be in a position at all times to be able to respond in an appropriate and timely manner so that patient needs are fully met and their families supported. The funds raised from Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice Together with Bewley’s are crucial in order to ensure that our services meets these objectives on an ongoing basis and clearly without such support we could not provide the level of services that we do. The success of campaigns like this is thanks to the incredible supporters; our coffee morning hosts, guests, Ambassadors and our sponsor Bewley’s. We thank them for their unwavering commitment, support and partnership over the last 25 years.”
Mark Saunders, Brand Director with Bewley’s said “Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice is one of Ireland’s longest running charity campaigns which to date has raised a massive and vital €34 million for local hospice and homecare services all around the country. Bewley’s is proud to support the campaign once again this year as we have done for last 25 years. As an Irish family company originally founded on Quaker principles, 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. With demand for specialist palliative care services rising each year we want this year’s coffee morning to be bigger and better than ever! That’s why we are asking everyone to come together on Thursday 14th September and enjoy a cup of Bewley’s coffee while supporting your local hospice and homecare service.”
