    I wanted to let you know about East Coast FM’s Wicklow Wide Coffee Morning in aid of the Cancer Support Services in County Wicklow and the Wicklow Hospice Foundation and hopefully get your support.

    They are running a county wide coffee morning on Friday 16th April in conjunction with East Coast FM’s Morning Show. Coffee mornings will take place simultaneously in nine different venues around the county between 10am and midday. Declan will link-up live to each venue a couple of times throughout the Morning Show as well as interviewing some celebrities that will be showing their support to the event. Already confirmed to take part on the day with appearances and/or performances are; Musicians Paddy Cole, Bagatelle, Paul Harrington, Rebecca Storm, Luan Parle, Don Mescall, Eleanor Mc Evoy, Mary Coughlan and Shay Healy, Ross O’ Carroll Kelly author, Paul Howard, Sports personalities Mick O’ Dwyer and Shane Byrne, comedian Jack Wise and celebrity Gardener Diarmuid Gavin.

    To make this event a success and to raise plenty of cash for the Wicklow cancer support services and the Wicklow Hopsice Foundation they need to get as many people as we can to the venues on the day. I was wondering if you would consider attending. I would also really appreciate it if you could bring as many of your friends/family/colleagues as possible along on the day and maybe you could also let as many people know about it as possible?

    The event is being promoted across the station, we are also encouraging people who can’t attend one of the East Coast venues to organise their own coffee morning. The East Coast FM website have a page dedicated to the event detailing how to take part and giving people the opportunity to donate-online. www.eastcoast.fm/coffee

    The Coffee Morning is to raise money for all of the cancer support centres/services in County Wicklow and also for the Wicklow Hospice Foundation. No doubt you’re aware of the great work they do and the lack of funding they face. They are an invaluable service for the county and our aim is use East Coast FM as a vehicle to get the people of Wicklow together to help raise awareness and plenty of money while having a good time. At last years event we managed to raise almost €25,000 in just two hours and we are hoping to make this years Wicklow Wide Coffee Morning an even bigger success.

    We will ask people to donate on the day and in return they will get coffee/tea, refreshments and the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes including weekend and overnight breaks, beauty hampers, dinners and much more. We will have a dedicated East Coast FM reporter on site at each venue and in some cases an East Coast DJ and hopefully a few famous faces.

    The coffee mornings will take place in;

    The Martello, Bray
    The Beach House, Greystones
    The Buttery Café at Fishers, Newtownmountkennedy
    Avoca in Powerscourt, Enniskerry
    The food court in the Arklow Bridgewater Shopping Centre, Arklow
    The Grand Hotel, Wicklow Town,
    West Wicklow House, Blessington
    Kavanaghs, Vartry House, Roundwood
    Avondale Sports, Rathdrum Main Street

    I’d really appreciate any help I can get with this – namely for you to be at one of the venues on the day if you can and also to bring along as many people as possible, it takes place at each of the nine venues on Friday 16th April between 10am and midday.
