A cuppa for a good cause

Have a cuppa, have a chat and help make a difference in someone’s life.

Marymount is encouraging people to host their own coffee morning during Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice, together with Bewley’s Celebrates, on 14 September to raise funds for its local hospice and homecare service.

“I have been personally touched by the amazing work of hospices and I have seen first-hand the impact the money raised makes to patients, staff and families. Across the country, hospice has, and will continue to provide people with the comfort of knowing that they are cared for throughout what can be one of the most difficult times in a family’s life,” said Ambassador Keith Duffy.

“Our hospice and homecare services are under increasing demand each year and we need to raise €3 million every year to provide our current level of services,” said Paula McGovern, Head of Communications and Fundraising for Marymount.

The coffee morning has raised €34 million for local hospice and homecare services around the country since its creation 25 years ago.

“With demand for specialist palliative care services rising each year, we want this year’s coffee morning to be bigger and better than ever!” said Mark Saunders, Brand Director for Bewley’s.

Register your coffee morning at marymount.ie/coffee-morning, or by contacting 021-4501201. Hosts are provided with a free coffee morning pack, containing Bewley’s coffee, posters and invitations.

Don’t forget to hashtag your morning with Coffee4Hospice!
