The popular seaside town of Tenby, is home to the magnificent Belgrave Hotel. Situated on the Esplanade, overlooking the beautiful South Beach and Caldey Island, this hotel has lots to offer from sea view rooms, large comfortable lounges, Wheelhouse bar and coffee shop and excellent food in The Galley Restaurant.

On Saturday 22nd June the Belgrave Hotel held a fundraising day in memory of Malcolm Thomas, who unfortunately passed away on 4th January 2019. The fundraising day; in aid of Paul Sartori Hospice at Home and Cancer Research UK, had something for everyone; from a craft fair, raffle, classic cars on display and food and drink available all day. 50% of the food and drink sales were also donated to the two charities. Throughout the day they raised an amazing £790.00 in total.

Malcolm Thomas was the proprietor of the family run hotel for over 50 years. Malcolm’s wife, Jan Thomas said “The Paul Sartori nurses were fantastic, they helped care for Malcolm at home where he wanted to be. We are extremely grateful for all the help and support that they provided at a very difficult time.”

This event attracted loyal customers from as far and as wide as Cardiff. They are looking at holding another event mid-September, to include a craft fair and raffle. Also they will hold a Christmas fundraiser in December. Keep an eye on the Paul Sartori Facebook page and their website for all upcoming events:
