In September 2017, Joules employees voted for Hospice UK to be a charity beneficiary, as they wanted to support local charities with a national impact. During 2018, Paul Sartori are working with Joules Tenby to develop a local relationship and have recently met to discuss the opportunities.
“It was great to learn more about this local long-established charity and to hear the crucial work they do in the county,” highlighted Simon Speakes, Manager of Joules Tenby, adding “It was great to talk to Toni and Judith about how we could help raise the charity’s profile and raise money for them. The team at Joules is looking forward to working with them over the coming year.”
“We were delighted to hear about this charity partnership and look forward to strengthening the relationship with the staff at Joules Tenby,” commented Judith Williams Funding & Projects Coordinator at Paul Sartori. “These charity partnerships make a big difference to our charity, and especially to the people living in our county with life limiting illnesses,” added Judith.
Toni Dorkings Community Fundraiser at Paul Sartori and Judith were recently welcomed to the Joules shop in Tenby, where they opened their doors to the public last September, being well-received by the folk of Tenby. “It was great to meet Simon at Joules Tenby. We have already identified areas where we can work together,” added Toni.

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 celebrated its 35th anniversary in during 2017/2018
