Paul Sartori, Pembrokeshire’s only Hospice at Home Service, has undergone a relocation to new premises from Haven Road to Winch Lane (behind the Leisure Centre on St Thomas’ Green) this year; a new logo; a new website to be launched officially at the forthcoming AGM – all during a special celebratory year.
During April this year, Paul Sartori held a special service, to not only celebrate its 35th anniversary, but also the origins of the Foundation and its namesake Father Paul Sartori. The memorial service was an opportunity for friends of the Foundation to come together and celebrate an extraordinary man and the inspiration for the renowned Hospice at Home service.
Another milestone has been the recent move and Paul Sartori have received considerable support from various sources enabling this to happen. Judith Williams, Funding & Projects Coordinator at Paul Sartori added, “We would not be in this position had it not been for these successful applications to progress certain investments. The Wolfson Foundation have been the major funder offering an award of £90,000 towards the cost of refurbishing the new head office. The Garfield Weston Foundation gave £25,000 towards the costs relating to the relocation. And locally, we have been supported by the Port of Milford Haven, as their chosen charity of the year, and their ongoing donations have contributed towards reception, among other items.”
Sandra Dade, Charity Manager at Paul Sartori was keen to state “We want to assure our local supporters that money has not been taken from charity funds to pay for the recent investment. The Board of Trustees is passionate about retaining gifts and donations from the general public for their intended purpose – in contributing towards the renowned care that we provide in the county”.
A new logo has also been launched and states what the charity does – “Paul Sartori Hospice at Home” – this is now on all stationery. The new website for Paul Sartori will be officially launched at the AGM at Paul Sartori House, Winch Lane, Haverfordwest on Wednesday 29th November 2017 starting at 6pm, with a tour of the new facilities on offer at 5pm. If members of the public are interested in attending they are asked to call 01437 763223 or email email@example.com.

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
- The Wolfson Foundation (www.wolfson.org.uk) is an independent charity that supports and promotes excellence in the fields of science, health, education and the arts and humanities.

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.
