Coffee Morning Social for Hospice is today!

…but you can hold an event any time!

Actor Brendan Gleeson recently called on communities across County Roscommon to gather in support of today’s ‘Bewley’s Big Coffee Morning Social’ in aid of Hospice  (Thursday, September 22nd).

“We are delighted Bewley’s Coffee Morning Social for Hospice is back for another year raising funds in support of Hospice in-patient and community services around Ireland,” Mayo Roscommon Hospice CEO Martina Jennings said.

“The funds raised each year by the Irish public ensure we continue to provide vital support to individual patients and their families every day”.

Hollywood star Brendan Gleeson said: “While your illness has defined you as a patient, Hospice care looks beyond your illness and sees you as a whole person with wishes, goals, hobbies and interests.

  “Patients are so well looked after, allowing them to live as full and independent lives as possible for as long as possible”.

Coffee morning hosts are asked to get creative this year and donate to local hospices at www.hospicecoffeemorning.ie/donate. Coffee mornings are being held across the county today as part of the office Big Coffee Morning Social but people are invited to host an event at a time that suits them.

You can of course hold a coffee morning on any day around this time – just register on a date that suits you at www.hospicecoffeemorning.ie or callsave 0818-995996. Hosts are provided with free coffee morning packs containing Bewley’s coffee, posters and invitations.
