Good Friday Remembrance Walk in Tullamore
In 2018 we held our inaugural Good Friday Remembrance Walk.
It was held again in 2019 on Good Friday and the numbers attending doubled so it was deemed a great success and is now going to be part of our fundraising calendar as an annual event.
The walk is an opportunity to openly remember loved ones who have died while also showing support for our local Hospice service.
Hospice Sunflower Days Collection
We hold our Hospice Sunflower Days Collection each year in June.
In early June each year we have Hospice Sunflower Days where we ask our volunteers to sell sunflower emblems at designated locations throughout the county.
All of the money raised is spent on our local Hospice service.
VHI Women’s Mini Marathon
June is also the month of the VHI ladies Mini Marathon where we ask participants to consider Offaly Hospice as their charity of choice to fundraise for.
Church Gate Collection
July is the month for our county wide Church Gate Collection where our many volunteers throughout the county organise and hold the collections.
Offaly Hospice Golf Classic
July 2019 saw the first Offaly Hospice Golf Classic being held at Tullamore Golf Club it was a resounding success and the hope is to have it as an annual event and follow in the footsteps of Clara Golf Society who hold an annual classic every year at Esker Hills Golf Club for Offaly Hospice. It is hoped that an annual Golf Classic would become part of the events calendar at every golf club in the county.
September is Coffee Morning month as part of Ireland Biggest Coffee Morning for Hospice together with Bewley’s.
We ask people to volunteer to ‘ Be a Host for Hospice’ gather family, friends, neighbours or workmates and host a coffee morning in their homes, work places or anywhere that they can enjoy a cuppa!
A 2020 Calendar was a new addition to our fundraising efforts the Calendar was thanks to an idea by Michael Carroll from Tullamore and the beautiful photos he had taken of local beauty spots which he wanted to put to good use. Through the kindness and generosity of the general public buying the calendars, the business community and many volunteers selling the calendars they were a great success so much so we hope to make it an annual fundraiser.
