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.”

Notes to Editors

Port of Milford Haven

The Port of Milford Haven is the UK’s top energy port and Wales’ busiest port handling around 20% of Britain’s seaborne trade in oil and gas.  It is widely recognised in the industry as the energy capital of the UK.

The Port, along with the cluster of energy-related businesses along the Waterway, is a key driver of economic activity in Pembrokeshire, attracting inward investment and supporting over 4,000 jobs.

The Port of Milford Haven also owns and operates Pembroke Port and Milford Dock.  Activities such as cargo handling, ferry operations, fish landing and cruise calls as well as a first class marina are spread across these two sites.

One of the most prominent on the West Coast, the Port is in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only Coastal National Park in Great Britain. It is marked as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and has many areas designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

The Port of Milford Haven is a trust port – an independent, commercially run organisation that has statutory responsibilities governed by its Acts, to maintain and improve navigation and the provision of Port and Harbour services and facilities.  Additionally, the Port provides significant financial and in-kind support to a wide variety of local causes.  All profits are retained within the business to fund these objectives.
