A coffee morning was held in Charlesland Community Centre recently, in aid of Blackrock Hospice.

The event was organised by local woman Sharon Felton as part of Ireland's Biggest Coffee Morning.

It was a very enjoyable and well-attended event.

The national campaign invited groups, organisations and individuals to gather their friends, family and neighbours to enjoy a cup of Bewley's coffee in support of a local hospice or home care service.

This was the 26th annual coffee morning. Every Euro raised goes directly to the hospice.

Funds raised have enabled local hospice groups to hire more specially trained palliative nurses to visit people in their homes, provide high quality care on in-patient units, and refurbish facilities as well as buying crucial equipment.

The coffee mornings have helped patients to live life as fully as possible with dignity, respect and comfort whilst making the most of precious time with their family and friends.

Sharon is also involved in a campaign to raise funds for her friend Jade McCann, who is battling cancer.
