The one reason you should host a coffee morning once the kids go back to school

There are about two weeks left before the kids head back to school, and parents all over will no doubt be in a mad rush to get things organised, and it'll be difficult trying to squeeze in time for even a coffee. 

However, when things do finally settle down, arrange for a catch up with the mums/ dads of the kids in your little one's class. 

It's so important to build up a friendly relationship with fellow parents; you'll be bumping into them for the next however number of years and it'd be lovely if you had more than just a "good morning" relationship.

And what better way to catch up than over a coffee and a bun? 

On Thursday, 20th September, Ireland's biggest coffee morning for Hospice Together with Bewley's returns, and people are being asked to host their own coffee morning. 


Since the first coffee morning 26 years ago, over €35 million has been raised by people around Ireland. This year, it is hoped that a much needed €2 million will be raised for local hospice and homecare services, to meet with growing demands for the service.

"I have seen first-hand the important work hospices do in local communities and have been personally touched by the vital work done in St. Francis Hospice," Ambassador Brendan Gleeson said.

"The money raised through Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice Together with Bewley’s helps hospice and homecare services around Ireland give patients the best quality of life during illness. I urge people to host a coffee morning on Thursday 20th September and continue to make a difference."

You can register at or by calling 1890 998 995. Hosts are provided with a Coffee Morning Pack containing Bewley’s coffee, posters and invitations free of charge. Remember, every cup counts!
