Visitors to the Paul Sartori Foundation’s new Haverfordwest premises will receive a warm welcome at a new reception area with thanks to the Port of Milford Haven and the Wolfson Foundation.

A successful application to the Port’s Community Fund, combined with an award of £90,000 from the Wolfson Foundation, has helped fund the refurbishment of the charity’s head office main reception and separate counselling and complementary reception areas at Winch Lane.

“This joint funding enabled the charity to purchase reception furniture that will really benefit visitors to our new Head Office and help ensure they are welcomed into a comfortable, professional environment,” said Judith Williams, Funding & Projects Coordinator from Paul Sartori Hospice at Home.

Celebrating their 35th anniversary this year – the Paul Sartori Foundation offers specialised, supportive care and advice for those in the later stages of any life-limiting illness and is the Port’s employee-voted Charitable Cause of the Year for 2017.  The new facilities will ensure continued support to the charity’s visitors and those who need help.

Anna Malloy, PR & Communications Manager at the Port said “The new premises at Winch Lane provide a warm and comforting environment for visitors to Paul Sartori, many of whom will be suffering from illness or grieving the loss of a loved one.  We are therefore very pleased to have been able to support them through our Community Fund.”

Volunteers at the Paul Sartori Foundation, Pembrokeshire’s only Hospice at Home Service, will be celebrating the great efforts of their volunteers during National Volunteer Week, which runs from 1st to 7th June.

The Paul Sartori Hospice at Home Service, celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, provides a range of services to people living in the final stages of a life limiting illness, including home nursing care, equipment loan, complementary therapy, bereavement and counselling support, clinical nurse specialist in palliative care, physiotherapy, advance care planning and training.

Volunteers are central to the work of countless charities, especially at Paul Sartori.  They are a valuable resource in helping in the shops sorting donations to helping individuals with living wills, and make a real difference to the charity and its services.

Caroline White, the Volunteer Coordinator at Paul Sartori recently joined the team, through funding awarded by the WCVA (Wales Council for Voluntary Action) Volunteering Wales Grant.  Caroline’s role is to enhance the volunteer programme at Paul Sartori.  She recognises first-hand the importance of volunteers in this sector and understands that resources are limited having previously worked at PAVS (Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services).

This week is a great platform for us to thank our volunteers and the contribution that they make to Paul Sartori, mentioned Caroline White, Volunteer Coordinator at Paul Sartori, adding “we are attending various events during the week, so if anybody is interested in volunteering I urge you to come along and have an informal chat with us.”

Paul Sartori will be at the Farmers Market alongside PAVS on Friday 2nd June and will be attending the PAVS Volunteers Week Celebration Week on Wednesday 7th June at Regency Hall, Saundersfoot (10.30am – 3pm).  Additionally, they will be running a “Hats Off to Volunteers” Campaign during the whole week where Paul Sartori will be inviting individuals and organisations to wear a silly hat for the day and donating £1 to Paul Sartori.  All 11 stores throughout the county will be joining in the festivities of the occasion too.

 

The funding for the Volunteer Coordinator at Paul Sartori was awarded by the WCVA (Wales Council for Voluntary Action) Volunteering Wales Grant Fund
