In 2020, many hospices nationwide made the decision to host their Coffee Mornings a little different than previous years. North Louth Hospice held their annual coffee morning at Rampart Shopping Centre in Dundalk, but this year they decided to host it as a ‘Drive Thru’ event instead of their usual office/shop.
They served some hot Bewely’s Coffee and Tea to local shoppers and supporters as well as some freshly baked delicious treats and raffle tickets. Despite the heavy rain on the day and with the help of local businesses it a huge success, collecting more than previous years for their local hospice services.
Overall the support of the community during such a tough year, made the frontline work of the palliative care team accessible for anyone who is in need. Dundalk and its surrounding areas are most generous towards hospice services and the fundraising committee of North Louth Hospice are grateful for their support and look forward to many more successful, alternative Coffee Mornings.
