It’s that time of year again where we all come together in our local communities to host coffee mornings for our local hospice!
The past 18 months has been incredibly challenging for so many, and while we are all still managing the return to some kind of normality, there is hope on the horizon and we are thrilled to see so many people supporting this year’s event.
Hospices were faced with many challenges throughout 2020 and while the event was drastically impacted by Covid-19, we raised over €1million. This is an incredible testament to the dedication and support from communities in villages, towns and cities right across the country.
Where people could no longer host in their homes, they adapted to Drive through coffee mornings and take away events. Where people could not join together with work colleagues they hosted virtual coffee mornings online. People came together in gardens and parks, and when that wasn’t possible, they asked people to donate to their local hospice instead. The support for hospice care in local communities is incredible, and is such a huge part of why Bewley’s Big Coffee Morning Social for Hospice has become an important event in the diary each year.
To those who have supported your local hospice year in year out, throughout the past 29 years – you have been a huge part of the over €40million that has been raised for hospices nationwide during this time, and we cannot thank you enough.
We wish you all the best for your coffee mornings again this year – Stay Safe!
