Ambassadors Domhnall Gleeson and Francis Brennan on tonight’s RTE Late Late Show!

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that two of our incredible Hospice Ambassadors, Francis Brennan and Domhnall Gleeson will be speaking on tonight’s Late Late Show in support of Hospice Coffee Morning Together with Bewley’s.

Hospice Coffee Morning Together with Bewley’s has been running in towns and villages all over Ireland for 28 years, raising over 39 million euro since inception. The campaign is co-ordinated by Together for Hospice which is made up of 26 Hospice and specialist palliative care providers nationwide.

It’s the biggest fundraising event of the year for hospice and specialist palliative care providers nationwide and it’s success is testament to local communities who have gotten behind their local hospice each and every year.

This year our fundraising efforts have been severely affected by COVID-19. While we are overwhelmed and incredibly grateful for the support of those who are in a position to host coffee mornings safely this year, we know that they cannot take place at the same scale that they would have previously.

This will have a devastating impact on our ability to raise the much needed €2 million that we would usually raise through this campaign. We need your support to urgently help us raise vital funds to support patients and families in your local area.

If you would like to make a donation, you can do so at the link below. All funds raised through this link will be split evenly between the 26 hospices involved with Together for Hospice.
