Together for Hospice, which represents 26 Hospice and specialist palliative home care services throughout the country, recently launched  the 2021 Bewley’s Big Coffee Morning Social for Hospice. 

The campaign was launched by journalist and broadcaster, Miriam O’Callaghan, who is calling on people across the country to support this important initiative by hosting a socially distanced or virtual coffee morning social on Thursday 23rd September.

Now in its 29th year, Together for Hospice are asking the public to get creative with their coffee creations and host a coffee morning social at a time that suits them – morning, noon, or night to raise funds.

“By getting together with family, friends, and colleagues for a coffee morning social we can support the vital work hospice and specialist palliative care services do for families and communities every day,” Miriam O’Callaghan said. 

“This year we really want to see people get creative with their events and coffee creations and take time together with loved ones to help make this the best year yet,” she said. 

Local Fundraising 

In 2020, the fundraising event raised over €1 million for local hospices and specialist palliative homecare services nationwide.

The funds raised have enabled local hospice groups to fund front-line staff such as nurses and healthcare assistants who provide specialist, high quality and loving care to patients and their families, fund on-going facility enhancements as well as purchasing crucial equipment.

We are immensely proud of our 29 year partnership with Hospice and proud to have helped raise over €40 million in vital funds for Hospices nationwide,” Jason Doyle, Managing Director at Bewley’s Ireland & UK said.

Funds raised locally stay local and go directly back into each local hospice service.

Hosts are provided with a Coffee Morning Pack containing Bewley’s coffee, posters, and invitations free of charge.
