The Pembrokeshire based Hospice at Home charity, Paul Sartori Foundation recently benefitted from the successful fundraising events arranged by the Mayor of Pembroke. Dennis Evans was elected as the Mayor of Pembroke for a second term and he did not hesitate in nominating Paul Sartori as his charity of the year.
Dennis has been a voting member of the Paul Sartori Foundation for a number of years, and he is also the President of the senior’s section at Rosemarket Golf Club, where his Presidents charity golf day raised over £400.00 for the charity. Also, collections and raffles held throughout the year raised an extra £250.00.
Other fundraising events consisted of a concert held in Monkton Priory Church, featuring Pembroke Male Voice Choir and Serendipity Ladies Choir from Narberth, raising over £400.00, and during March a parade of 300 RAF Air Cadets and a band of 60+ musicians, which went through Pembroke Main Street and into the Castle. This brought some colour and splendour to a very dismal day, during which the Paul Sartori bucket collection raised £355.00.
Dennis also applied for and obtained £500.00 funding from Pembroke Power Station, and he forwarded a further £93.00 from his Mayor’s allowance to the charity. A recent cheque presentation was held in the Pembroke Town Hall at the King’s Coronation Afternoon Tea, where the Mayor of Pembroke presented a cheque for a fantastic £2,024.00 to Toni Dorkings, Community Fundraiser for Paul Sartori Foundation.
Dennis Evans said “I am most grateful for all the help and support that I have received during my term of office and delighted that I have been able to support a very worthwhile local charity. Paul Sartori Foundation do tremendous work within the communities of Pembrokeshire.”
