The Paul Sartori Foundation is appealing to businesses or individuals to consider working with a charity and to help make a difference. The campaign for sponsorship has been launched recently due to a move to a new head office in a few months’ time.
The Paul Sartori Foundation is passionate about working with companies to create successful partnerships that deliver a real difference to people living in the final stages of a life limiting illness as well as their families, friends and carers. New corporate partnerships are vital in supporting the Foundation’s aims in continuing to provide sustainable services that promote good end of life care in Pembrokeshire.
“This is a great opportunity for individuals or businesses, locally or further afield to link up with a high profile charity. A number of organisations these days have a community obligation and wish to appoint a charity of the year to sponsor. What better charity to support than the Paul Sartori Foundation,” explained Judith Williams, Project and Funding Coordinator for the Paul Sartori Foundation.
“This year is a big year for us, as we move our Head Office and we celebrate our 35th anniversary. We are lucky to secure such great support, but we would be very grateful to companies to consider this request. We have low cost options to suit various budgets,” added Judith Williams.
We are looking for a very special sort of volunteer for our Nostalgia Shop in Tenby. Someone with an interest in “times gone by”, someone who has a passion for the “good old days”, someone who feels pleasure from finding a treasure in the vast array of interesting donations the general public give us.
Someone who feels great pride in our historic manufacturing processes, where furniture was really built to last “buy quality and buy once”. We would love someone with a keen eye for detail, who can spot a rare diamond amongst the glass baubles that are abundant in our Stores. It’s not a run of the mill charity shop. Nostalgia embraces all things “gone by” and keeps History Alive!
Please contact Kathy Pollard, Store Manager of Nostalgia Tenby on 01834 843804 or email Kathy@paulsartori.org for further information.

Ed Morris raises money for the Paul Sartori Foundation from half way across the World in memory of his father and to give something back to the charity. Ed decided to embark on his first triathlon in Huskisson, Jervis Bay in Australia in recognition of the care and support given to his father by the Foundation.
Ed messaged us after completing the challenge on 20th February and explained, “It was tough and I needed every bit of support I could get! I managed to finish in 5h 53m which was roughly what I was aiming for so quite happy, also very happy it’s over!”, continuing “The donations are still coming in to the Paul Sartori Foundation and I am glad I can help and give something back for all the support that my family received in our time of need”.
Thank you from us all Ed in allowing us to continue to provide our vital services. What a challenge you have completed – Well done! The Paul Sartori Hospice at Home Service provides a range of services to people living in the final stages of a life limiting illness.
The Paul Sartori Foundation, Pembrokeshire’s only Hospice at Home Service, is pleased to announce the relocation of its Sartori Furnishings Store from 93b Main Street, Pembroke, to 30-32 Main Street, Pembroke.
The Foundation will be closing the existing premises at 93b Main Street on Saturday 25th February and will officially open its doors on Wednesday 1st March at 11am.
“This new move is a great opportunity for us as we are struggling with space at our current premises. We are fortunate to have secured such a property to give us plenty of room to expand our furniture selection to customers. The facilities in this new store will also mean ample stock rooms and a better environment for our dedicated team of volunteers,” said Tim Davies, head of retail from the Paul Sartori Foundation.
“We are supported by an enthusiastic team of volunteers, who have been working tirelessly to open the store on time,” commented Amanda-Jane Myatt, Store Manager of the Sartori Furnishings Pembroke, adding: “Because we are re-opening on St David’s Day many of our volunteers will be making Welsh Cakes for our visitors.”
