Roger Hainsworth was a keen collector of Vintage and Classic Motor bikes. Back in April this year, his wife Liz Hainsworth decided to open the doors of Rogers’s beloved collection of bikes and memorabilia to raise vital funds for Paul Sartori Hospice at Home.
Roger received care from Paul Sartori during the final days of his life, like so many in the county. Liz said “I just want to give something back for the fantastic care Roger received.”
Toni Dorkings Community Fundraiser at Paul Sartori added “It was a beautiful day in Manorbier. Friends and motor bike enthusiasts turned up to see the beautiful bikes on display. An outstanding £1,563.11 was raised on the day and I would like to thank everyone who came along to support this fantastic one off event in memory of Roger.”
The Paul Sartori Hospice at Home Service provides a range of services to people living in the final stages of a life limiting illness, including home nursing care, equipment loan, complementary therapy, bereavement and counselling support, clinical nurse specialist in palliative care, physiotherapy, advance care planning and training. The services provided by the Paul Sartori Hospice at Home Service enable people in the later stages of any life limiting illness to be cared for at home with dignity, independence, pain free and surrounded by those they hold most dear.
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
