Crowe attends Hospice Coffee Morning

20 September, 2012 - by Seán Crowe TD


Dublin South West TD Seán Crowe has attended the 20th Anniversary of Our Lady’s Hospice Coffee Morning in Harold’s Cross today. Coffee mornings were held by hospice supporters all over the island to raise much needed funds for the vital work they do.

Speaking after the event Deputy Seán Crowe said:

“I was delighted to attend the fundraising event for Our Lady’s Hospice Coffee Morning in Harold’s Cross with Councillor Máire Devine.

“I want to congratulate all those associated with this and other events organised today, throughout the country. The event in Harold’s Cross celebrated its 20th Anniversary and I am hoping it has helped raise a significant amount of money to compliment and support the fantastic work of the hospice service.

“The hospice provides specialist care for people with a wide range of needs from rehabilitation to end of life care.

“It was great to meet many of the hospice’s staff, volunteers, patients and their families. It is very clear to see that the hospice offers a very important wide range services to its patients, and the staff and volunteers carry out amazing work in difficult circumstances.

“Unfortunately the hospice services, like other key medical supports, are in need of vital funds to continue their valuable work. I would encourage anyone unable to contribute today to organise their own events and support of this worthy cause.

“Today marked the 20th Anniversary but anyone can organise a coffee morning at any time in your home, workplace or your community, with friends and family, to fundraise in support of the hospice service.

“Well done to everyone involved in today’s event.” ENDS
