A local lad recently decided to take on the Carten 100 Cycle Challenge and on 1st June this year he completed the gruelling ride. The 100 mile cycle route takes the participants from Cardiff to Tenby in one day. Carten was started by a small group of friends and grew into a huge fundraising event which has collectively raised over £1million pounds in the 13 years it has taken place.
Jonathan Kenward decided to take on the challenge to raise vital funds for Paul Sartori Hospice at Home. He is very passionate about supporting this local charity, he also Volunteers at the Paul Sartori Warehouse in Snowdrop Lane. “Despite having to stop on a few occasions due to a previous injury with my knee, the thought of helping such a good cause got me to the finish line.” Said Jonathan.
Jonathan raised over £470.00 for Paul Sartori, he is currently still receiving sponsorship for his fantastic effort. “It is through the generosity and determination of local people like Jonathan that we can continue to provide this much needed service for anyone in the later stages of any life limiting illness. The services are available free of charge, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.” Said Sandra Dade, Charity Manager at Paul Sartori Hospice at Home.
Paul Sartori Hospice at Home provides a range of services to Pembrokeshire 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.
