“My Grandfather was cared for by Paul Sartori nurses; within his own home during his battle with cancer, this was a huge help. My mum and I really appreciated all of the support from Paul Sartori Hospice at Home and this is why I chose to do this challenge; to raise money to give back to the Charity” said Robert.

In total Robert raised a fantastic £2042.24. Roberts employer, Valero will also be adding to the final figure. Lynn Hunter, Management RN at Paul Sartori Hospice at Home said “We are extremely grateful for Robert taking on this incredible cycle ride to raise vital funds, this will go towards a range of services for Pembrokeshire people living in the final stages of any life-limiting illness.”
