The Paul Sartori Foundation, Pembrokeshire’s only Hospice at Home Service is hosting a very special memorial service on the 18th April 2017 at 1pm at St David & St Patrick Catholic Church, Haverfordwest to celebrate the origins of the Foundation and its namesake Father Paul Sartori.
The service will include eulogies from the Sartori Family and performances from Lynne Kelleher, organist; Julie Conybeare playing the clarinet and a solo by Emily Nicholas all giving up their time to attend this special occasion.
A silent walk will follow the service to remember Father Paul Sartori to the new Head Office for those who can make it. Light refreshments will be provided at the new Head Office, Paul Sartori House, Winch Lane, Haverfordwest and parking is available at Rifflemans Car Park to the rear of the offices for those coming by car.
Father Paul Sartori, a Haverfordwest-based Parish Priest, saw a need for hospice care in Pembrokeshire. Shortly after recognising the need he unfortunately became ill himself and died from cancer at the age of 39, in 1980. His inspiration moved a small group of his local parishioners and in his memory friends strived to bring his ideas to fruition and so the Paul Sartori Foundation came about.
“In May 1981, Paul Sartori Foundation was formed initially with a home care service team of 6 carers; in 1982, 35 years ago in 1982, the Foundation became a registered charity; shortly afterwards funding was granted for a nurse, Carmel Gould, who was also one of the Foundation’s founding members,” explained Sandra Dade, Charity Manager of the Paul Sartori Foundation, adding “This memorial service is a great opportunity for us all to come together to celebrate an extraordinary man and the inspiration for our renowned Hospice at Home Service.”
If you would like to attend please contact Ceri Price, email@example.com, or telephone 01437 763223.

New equipment has been purchased by the Paul Sartori Foundation following a donation from the Port of Milford Haven.
Staff at the Port voted for the Pembrokeshire-based charity to be its 2017 Charitable Cause of the Year and have a programme of fundraising and volunteering activities planned to support them over the coming months.
The Paul Sartori Foundation offers specialised, supportive care and advice for those in the later stages of any life-limiting illness and providing patients with the right equipment is an important part of the service. The donation has enabled the charity to purchase new Tilt-in-Space chairs to reduce the number of times a patient is lifted, double Propad mattress overlays to relieve pressure and a Mercury Advance mattress to prevent pressure sores.
Sandra Dade, Charity Manager, said “Equipment plays a big part in the charity’s ability to support patients in their own home. The smallest item can make the biggest difference to a person’s independence, dignity and comfort. Last year we delivered over one thousand items of equipment. We cannot thank the team at the Port of Milford Haven enough for helping us to replenish these critical items.”
Commenting on the donation Vidette Swales, HR Director at the Port of Milford Haven, said “It was incredibly interesting visiting the Paul Sartori Foundation and seeing the vast amount of equipment that they distribute to patients all over the county. We’re really pleased that we can help them to deliver a direct benefit to the people they care for and we’re looking forward to providing assistance in a range of other ways over the coming months.”

The Paul Sartori Foundation, Pembrokeshire’s only Hospice at Home Service, was delighted to open its doors to the public at the relocated Sartori Furnishings Store 30-32 Main Street, Pembroke on St David’s Day; with one very important customer, a member of the Sartori Family.
The Store was officially opened, Wednesday 1st March, by the Mayor and Mayoress of Pembroke, Dennis and Rita Evans. Charles Clewett, Chairman of the Paul Sartori Foundation welcomed all who attended and explained the significant contribution that the stores make to the nursing care provisions provided by the charity within the county; thanking the other Store Managers, staff and volunteers for their contributions.
The Foundation was grateful that Brian Hughes, the first cousin of Father Paul Sartori (the inspiration for the charity) attended the event; along with Paul Watkins Waste Improvement Manager from Pembrokeshire County Council who also attended the busy opening. Brian, who travelled from Swansea was introduced to a number of key members of staff at Paul Sartori; he was delighted to attend event and meet everyone.
“We were www.mindanews.com/buy-levaquin/ thrilled to open the doors to a crowd of shoppers and VIPs,” said Amanda Myatt, Store Manager of Pembroke and Pembroke Dock Stores, adding “the support for the closing down of one store and reopening at a new location has been overwhelming, which has happened very quickly, with a number of late nights. Thank you to those who helped.”
The Sartori Stores, aren’t just any old outlets, they are retail outlets where you can buy quality donated clothes, antiques, jewellery, vintage/retro items and furniture while supporting Pembrokeshire’s only Hospice at Home Care Service. The new, better placed store is in the centre of the town of Pembroke within walking distance from other amenities and is also much larger than the previous location which will offer customers more choice.
If members of the public are interested in donating good quality items; would like to volunteer or would simply benefit from more information on the charity, they are invited to visit the new Store in Pembroke, view their website www.paulsartori.org, or phone 01437 763223.
