To remind everyone to host, attend, or donate to Bewley's Big Coffee Morning Social for Hospice on September 21st, the duo "got brewing" at Government Buildings.
According to Varadkar, “This is an event that rightfully recognises the tireless, and frequently unseen, work undertaken by hospice staff and volunteers throughout Ireland.”
“This is an opportunity for each of us to recognise the significant contribution that businesses make to families.”
“None of us can predict whether or when we will require hospice care, which gives thousands of families whose loved ones require end-of-life care or are dealing with life-limiting illnesses comfort and dignity.”
“A special word of thanks to all those involved in this fundraiser, now entering its fourth decade, especially those who host coffee mornings.”
The longtime hospice advocate and broadcaster Maia Dunphy said: “It's wonderful to be able to do these things in person once more. It's such a significant and enjoyable fundraiser.”
“It is such an easy and efficient way to support Together for Hospice; if you are unable to host, simply attend a coffee morning or make a donation.”
Since 1992, Bewley's Big Coffee Morning Social for Hospice has raised over €43.2 million, and this year's goal is €2 million.
26 hospice and specialised palliative home care providers who support patients and their families are represented by the national hospice movement, Together for Hospice.
Locally generated money stays in the community and is reinvested in each hospice, allowing them to innovate, construct new facilities, create new services, improve patient care, and provide additional benefits to patients and their families.
