Come along and have a coffee

By Staff Reporter

L ocal people are being urged to take part in a coffee morning in September to raise money for the Northern Ireland Hospice. The event, held in association with Orchardville Football Club, is one of several taking place in the West of the city on  September 20 in what is expected to be Ireland’s biggest ever coffee morning to raise funds for the local charity.

Danny Brown, Manager of Orchardville Football Club, has arranged the morning and is looking forward to enjoying a well-deserved coffee break.

“As a local charity, Northern Ireland Hospice has a strong presence within our community and as Manager of Orchardville Football Club, I am delighted to be hosting a coffee morning,” he said. “It is great knowing that something as simple as a coffee morning can raise lots of money to help provide care and support to local families who depend on hospice services.

“I extend a warm welcome to everyone to support this very worthwhile event by coming along and having a coffee from 10am onwards on Thursday September 20.’’

Hospice

This year Northern Ireland Hospice will be celebrating its twentieth year of coffee mornings.  Urging everyone to get involved and host a coffee morning this September, NI Hospice Events Fundraiser, Lynn Boyce, said: “This is the twentieth anniversary of our hospice coffee mornings and we want to make this year the biggest and best ever.

“The event is easy to organise, very sociable and extremely worthwhile. Thursday, September 20 is our official coffee morning date, but if this doesn’t suit, you can choose another date in September or October.  All money raised from coffee mornings will be used to provide local Hospice care to terminally ill patients in their own homes and will help support the family as a whole.’’

The event will take place in the Emerald Roadhouse.
