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.

June Harries along with her supportive family and friends recently organised a Concert and Auction at Clarbeston Road Memorial Hall in memory of Phil Harries.

The memorial concert and auction held on 24th September raised a total of £6,100 for two charities the Paul Sartori Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support each receiving half.  Both organisations offered support to June’s husband during his illness and June wanted to give something back.

June’s family were a fundamental support to her during the organisation of the event.  “Three of my grandchildren attended, Ben, Harry and Amy and were a great help on the evening”, commented June, adding “The event was well supported by the local community and I want to thank everybody for attending and making it a very special occasion”.

Appearing on the evening were Harmoni and West Wales Show Choir, Soloists Pippa Williams, Anthony Morgan and Gwyn Morris who delivered a wonderful concert to the audience.  The evening also featured a great family auction, with prizes donated from local individuals and businesses along with a raffle with “a gardener for a half day” prize!  The highlight of the night included members of the Llys Y Fran YFC and Clarbeston Road AFC performing a hilarious “Calendar Boys” sketch.

Sandra Dade, Paul Sartori Foundation Charity Manager thanked the family for their crucial support adding, “The amazing amount you have raised will directly help people in Pembrokeshire, and ensure that we can continue to offer the vital care and support to people living in the county with a life limiting illness.”

Sue Reece, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan, said ‘we are very grateful to June and her family for choosing to raise money for Macmillan. Without such kind donations we would not be able to provide support and advice to people affected by cancer in the local community.’

Memorial concerts and events like these are crucial to the Paul Sartori Foundation, with the local community always coming up with new ways of fundraising in memory of someone special.  If you have an idea for a local fundraiser, but would like some help and advice, the Foundation urges you to contact Toni Dorkings, the Community Fundraiser either via email toni@paulsartori.org or by phoning 01437 763223.
