Another successful Ladies Night was held on Wednesday 8th November at Sartori’s in Neyland raising £1,162.75 for Paul Sartori! These nights are full of fun, frivolity and plenty of shopping! And this one was no different, with a particular theme for the “contrary” lady.
Ladies were welcomed into the store; supplied with a glass of bubbly and were given exclusive shopping rights to the wears on offer. A high range of quality designer was, as always, “the star of the show”, with many bargains to be had! The air was full of excitement as ladies perused the shop for bargains, befriended each other and casually chattered amongst themselves.
Mags John, Volunteer at the Neyland Store commented “These evenings are a hoot! I look forward to them from the moment I start planning and putting quality items away. I can’t wait for the evening to arrive! As always, it is great to welcome the stalwart customers that enjoy these evenings, and the new ones. Our volunteers who help for this event love the buzz too.”
“The special thing about these evenings is that some of our ladies enjoy it because they don’t like shopping generally, so we provide a relaxed atmosphere for them to enjoy the experience with friends, a glass of bubbly and they leave with a bargain too!” added Mags, “We have a great community spirt in the Neyland as well and it was great to see so many locals out supporting Paul Sartori. We are already looking forward to the next one,” Mags concluded.

Notes to Editors:
Paul Sartori Hospice at Home Service:
- is particularly keen to dispel the belief that it is a ‘cancer charity’ as this deters people with other life-limiting conditions from contacting the Paul Sartori Foundation (approximately 35% have a non-cancer diagnosis)
- operates an open referral system with over 15% of referrals from patients, family and friends. The biggest referral group is District Nurses, followed by Palliative Care Clinical Nurse Specialists and hospital staff
- was established in memory of Father Paul Sartori, a much loved local priest, who recognised a need for hospice care, but unfortunately died of cancer at the age of 39. The Foundation was set up in his memory and provides care to people with any or no faith, and not just Catholics
- charity was registered in 1982 and celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2017
