There was overwhelming support in Rush for the town's participation in Ireland's Biggest Coffee Morning which took place in Rush Sailing Club in aid of St Francis Hospice.

Local woman, Cathrina Coyle helped organise the event and had a long list of local businesses to thank from Rush and nearby Skerries and Swords who rowed in behind the effort.

More than 30 businesses mostly from Rush, Skerries and Swords stepped up to help the fundraising drive in a huge show of support for the hospice which has a special place in the heart of many families in north Dublin.

The coffee morning took place at Rush Sailing Club recently and apart from a cup of coffee, participants could enjoy buns and cakes and take part in a giant raffle with prizes donated by the dozens of businesses who supported the event.

Organisers were hugely grateful for the incredible support the coffee morning received. It was all part of an annual effort on behalf of the Hospice Foundation in association with Bewley's to raise cash for the hospice.
