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 2017, 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, 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 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.
