Local author Mr Gerald Codd recently launched his new local history book, ‘Manorbier – the Parish in old photographs’ with proceeds to Paul Sartori Hospice at Home. The occasion was held in the suitable setting of the Crypt of Manorbier Castle, with kind permission of Dame Emily Naper.

Paul Sartori, a locally based end of life care charity, had supported Gerald and his late wife during her short illness. Gerald explained “I decided that I wanted all of the money raised from the book launch to be donated to this charity close to my heart.” Gerald donated £300 to Paul Sartori.

This new book by Gerald Codd is the second to be written on the parish – his previous book was titled ‘Manorbier Parish, a history’, which was well received.

Toni Dorkings Community Fundraiser commented, “I would like to thank Gerald for his generosity during a very difficult time. Paul Sartori is grateful to receive such donations. This amount will directly go to help more patients in Pembrokeshire.”

The Paul Sartori Hospice at Home Service 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.

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 and to die at home with dignity, independence, pain free and surrounded by those they hold most dear if that is their wish.

Services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, thanks to the kind generosity of the Pembrokeshire Community.
