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.”
