Bewley’s employees have completed an impressive 100km fundraising cycle across Dublin to get into gear for the 30th anniversary of the Bewley’s Big Coffee Morning Social for Hospice.
The group of seven cyclists racked up the kilometers on Wednesday (September 14) as the countdown continues to this year’s annual coffee morning, which will take place next Thursday, September 22.
Led by Jason Doyle, Managing Director of Bewley’s Ireland & UK, the Bewley’s team members hopped behind their handlebars to raise awareness for hospice and to encourage the Irish public to get behind the coffee morning social event.
The cyclists visited St. Francis Hospice, Blanchardstown, Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services Harold’s Cross and St Francis Hospice, Raheny, along the route before finishing at Bewley’s HQ in Northern Cross.
Bewley’s has a long standing relationship with hospice and will be celebrating 30 years of coffee mornings in aid of the charity next week.
The event has raised over €41.5 million for hospice since its inception in 1992.
“Bewley’s is delighted to support this wonderful cause by completing a 100km cycle across Dublin,” said Jason Doyle, Managing Director at Bewley’s Ireland and UK.
"This year marks 30 years since Bewley’s began its fundraising efforts for hospices nationwide and we hope to maintain this special relationship, and to continue raising vital funds for hospice, for many more years to come.
"We are calling on the Irish public to make our 30th Bewley’s Big Coffee Morning Social for Hospice the most successful one yet, by supporting the event on September 22 and contributing to the invaluable work of hospices across the country.
“If you can’t host a coffee morning social, please remember to donate as all funds raised locally stay local and go back into each local hospice service, helping to pay for medical and general staff, palliative care beds, home care visits, specialist equipment and new hospice builds."
