A concert was held recently at St Mary’s Church, Warren (near Castlemartin) in memory of much loved choir member Sonia Thompson which raised a total of £740 for the Paul Sartori, a local charity providing care to people with life limiting illnesses.

Various members of the “Sing for Joy” choir group organised this event in Sonia’s memory, who passed away last year.  It was the choice of the family that the proceeds of the concert should go to Paul Sartori, due to the excellent care received.

Toni Dorkings, Community Fundraiser for Paul Sartori Hospice at Home thanked the members of the “Sing for Joy” choir group and the family of Sonia Thompson adding, “The amount raised will directly help more people in Pembrokeshire who require our services, and ensure that we can continue to offer the vital care and support to people living in the county with any life limiting illness.”

Concerts, coffee mornings and local community events like these are crucial to the Paul Sartori Hospice at Home charity.  If you have an idea for a local fundraiser, but would like some help and advice, Paul Sartori urge you to contact Toni Dorkings the Community Fundraiser either via email toni@paulsartori.org or by phoning 01437 763223.

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.”

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.”
