Wexford is bound to be buzzing when people across the county gather together to take part in Ireland's Biggest Coffee Morning on September 17.

TV and Radio broadcaster Claire Byrne has appealed for people of Wexford to get involved in the annual event in an effort to raise vital funds for Wexford Hospice Homecare. This is the 23rd year of the fundraiser, which sees people set up local coffee mornings in aid of their local hospice.

According to Ann Somers from Wexford Hospice Homecare, the Coffee Morning is very beneficial to them.

'Money raised through Ireland's Biggest Coffee Morning will go towards continuing our service, which now has six clinical nurse specialists in palliative care providing care in the community,' she said.

The annual event is supported by Bewley's, who will provide free coffee to anyone who wishes to hold a coffee morning.

According to Mark Saunders, Bewley's Brand Director, the company are very proud of their involvement in the event.

'Hospice care is about ensuring the best possible quality of life for people throughout our communities,' he said. 'The more cups of Bewley's coffee that people enjoy, the greater the benefit that will be achieved for hospices all over Ireland."
