The annual Hospice Coffee Morning is set to take place on Thursday, September 24, and this year it is expected to take a huge financial hit nationwide due to Covid-19 restrictions.
However, Arlene McNeill from McNeill's pub on Connaught Street is determined not to let the annual event to pass without trying to raise funds for South Westmeath Hospice.
"South Westmeath Hospice is so important to Athlone and I want to try to raise funds in a responsible way, following the Covid-19 guidelines.
"I will be hosting a coffee morning in McNeill's pub on Connaught Street on Thursday, September 24 from 10am to 2pm.
"People can get a takeaway and we will also have some limited seating available," she said.
