Paul Sartori have a big aim to raise £35,000, in its 35th Anniversary, to replace the Equipment Delivery Van. This van, replacing “Tom’s Truck donated by Val Harries” is critical to enable patients to either be discharged from hospital or prevent their admission & supports their wish to die at home.
The new van to be purchased in April 2018, will need to have many bespoke features include internal fibre glassing to ensure it can be easily be washed down and kept hygienic, an external tail lift to the back of the vehicle, parking sensors and will need to be sign-written.
Please help achieve our target and continue this vital service.
So far, over £21,000 has been raised:
- £10,000 from West Wales Freemasons Masonic Charitable Foundation
- £1,053.63 has been raised by COOP members through the COOP community fund
- £2,700 so far has been raised from the sale of the 35th Anniversary Paul Sartori Raffle Tickets
- £2,971 so far has been raised from the crowdfunding campaign (including gift aid and pledges yet to be received)
- £5,000 has been pledged by The Gannett Foundation

- Van provides a rapid response service to enable patients to either be discharged from hospital or prevent their admission and supports their wish to die at home
- Van transports many essential items including profile beds, pressure relieving mattresses bed accessories and bathing aids, wheelchairs and many other items straight into the homes of people who need it
- Equipment is cleaned, checked, maintained and delivered by the experienced Equipment Loan Team

- Costs are rising on vehicle servicing for the current van which is over 8 years old and has over 92,000 miles on the clock
- The Paul Sartori Equipment Loan Service supplements the statutory sources, but is the only supplier of some items (e.g. bath lifts and bed tables)
