Tenby born singer and guitarist Billy Cole, has been performing in Pembrokeshire since the early 1960’s. Billy, now of Reynalton regularly plays in hotels, clubs and private functions. Throughout 2022 Billy set out once again to raise vital funds for a local charity.

Billy released a new 26 track album, called “On to the Past”, the money raised from the sale of the CD’s and his gigs benefitted Paul Sartori Foundation. The Pembrokeshire based Hospice at Home service, assists people living in the final stages of a life-limiting illness, including home nursing care, equipment loan, complementary therapy, bereavement and counselling support, physiotherapy, advance care planning and training.

He raised a staggering amount of £2250.00, and recently visited Paul Sartori House in Winch Lane, Haverfordwest to present a cheque to them. Toni Dorkings, Paul Sartori Community Fundraiser said “We are so very grateful to people like Billy Cole, who use their talents to help Paul Sartori nurses make a difference in our community and of course to the people who bought this CD without whom we could not offer the service’s that we do here in Pembrokeshire.”

Billy said “I have supported a few local charities over the years. This last year was no exception, and I have heard nothing but good things about this local Charity – Paul Sartori Foundation.  So I wanted to give something back for the excellent work they do in our community.”

The services provided by the Paul Sartori Hospice at Home 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. 

All of the services are free of charge and are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, thanks to the generosity of the Pembrokeshire Community.
