First time marathon runner James Roch, raised an outstanding amount of money for the Pembrokeshire based Hospice at Home charity. Paul Sartori Foundation have recently benefitted from James’s amazing fundraising effort. James, originally from Haverfordwest, attended Ysgol Y Preseli before moving to study at University, and now resides in London. So what better than to take on the epic London Marathon!

This was James’s first ever marathon and he completed it in a quick time of 3 hours 31 minutes and 40 seconds. He recently visited Paul Sartori House, in Winch Lane, Haverfordwest to present the Paul Sartori Clinical Team with a cheque for the total of £1050.00. He was also very grateful of his friends and family’s support on the day, and to everyone who donated.

James said “I chose to fundraise for Paul Sartori Foundation as they gave end-of-life care to both my grandparents, which meant they could spend their last few days of life at home, they are also a great local charity in Pembrokeshire to support.”
