‘Support Roscommon Hospice’ call

Mayo/Roscommon Hospice Foundation is appealing to people to support this year’s Hospice Coffee Morning, together with Bewley’s.

Organisers are calling on the public to host a coffee morning on Thursday, 24th of September to help raise vital funds for their local hospice.

This year, due to Covid-19 restrictions, coffee morning hosts are encouraged to host socially distanced or virtual coffee mornings. It is hoped that this year’s events – whether held in small groups in homes, or virtually with colleagues and friends – will raise much-needed funds for hospices across Ireland, to meet growing demands for the services.

CEO of Mayo/Roscommon Hospice Foundation, Martina Jennings, said: “Our coffee morning hosts range from families who have availed of the service and experienced the work of our wonderful palliative care teams first-hand.

“Construction is underway on the Roscommon Hospice and will be completed next year. All €6 million of that cost will come from fundraising.

“Thanks to Bewley’s, every single euro raised by people who host a local coffee morning goes directly to Mayo-Roscommon Hospice Foundation”.
