Bewley’s employees will embark on a charity 97km cycle around Dublin today, stopping off at three hospice facilities, who will each receive a €1,000 donation from Bewleys.
As part of their journey the team of 13 cyclists, led by managing director Jason Doyle, will be pit-stopping at Our Lady's Hospice & Care Services, Harold’s Cross, St. Francis Hospice, Blanchardstown and St. Francis Hospice, Raheny, who will each receive the donation.
The charity cycle is to raise awareness for Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice Together with Bewley’s, to encourage on the people of Ireland to host a coffee next Thursday 19 September to help raise vital funds for their local hospice.
“Community and people are at the heart of Bewley’s and caring for people in the local community is what hospice services are all about," Doyle said.
"Our annual cycle has been a fantastic way for us to not only support the campaign but for members of the Bewley’s team to come together to see first-hand the vital care services provided by our local hospices, really highlighting the importance of the campaign in raising funds for those who need it most."
The coffee company said that it is hoping that this year’s events, held in homes and businesses across the country, will raise a much needed €2 million for Hospices across Ireland, to meet growing demands for the service.
