The 10th Annual East Coast FM Wicklow Wide Coffee Morning is back on the 20th April and is hoping to raise as many funds and awareness as possible for the cancer support services and The Wicklow Hospice. This year we have 12 main venues dotted around the county with live music and celebrity guests. We also have our annual table quiz on Thursday 26th April at 7.30pm in Bray Golf Club.
A special coffee morning in Blessington is still to be announced, so keep your eyes on our Facebook page and ears listening to East Coast FM. Plus over 50 businesses are also holding mini coffee mornings for their staff, customers and many schools are holding events for their students.
To celebrate the 10th year of the annual fundraiser which supports these service, we are also entering a team into the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon. To join our team, email Clare Hogan on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 012724700.
