Father Paul Sartori, was a Haverfordwest-based Parish Priest. He saw a need for hospice care in Pembrokeshire. Not long after recognising this need he became ill himself and died from cancer at the age of 39, in 1980.
His inspiration moved a small group of his local parishioners and in his memory they strived to bring his ideas to fruition and so the Paul Sartori Foundation came about.
In 1982 the Foundation became a registered charity; shortly afterwards funding was granted for a nurse, Carmel Gould, who was also one of the Foundation’s founding members.
