The ‘World’s Largest Coffee Party’ is a Hospice Prince Edward initiative presented for the past two years is at the half-way point.

Local shops, businesses, social clubs, churches and individuals  invite neighbours, family, friends, customers and colleagues to coffee parties in their homes or businesses, and encourage donations to the community residential hospice.

HOSPICE PRINCE EDWARDSpeakers from Hospice have attended many of these events to inform and update party attendees on the first year, and to talk about the community visiting volunteer program, and bereavement support groups.

“The response of our community has, once again, been wonderfully supportive, enabling us continue to fulfill our vision of “supporting the journey of living with dying” by providing comfort, compassion and care to those in need of palliative and bereavement support in Prince Edward County,” said Judy Fraser, of Hospice Prince Edward.
