£10,000 Aid for Hospice Charity

Pembrokeshire-based charity Paul Sartori Hospice at Home has been awarded £10,000 from the Albert Hunt Trust to contribute towards its end-of-life care to patients, families and carers.

Such support is crucial to enable the charity to continue to support patients with any life-limiting diagnosis, such as cancer; plus their families and carers. 

This funding will contribute towards the hospice at home service delivered to adults across Pembrokeshire. It includes supporting families by assisting and expediting discharges from hospital for end-of-life patients; providing remote 24-hour on-call support; providing hands-on day and night nursing care; and where appropriate allocating nurses for night-care visits to support unstable patients.

Sandra Dade, charity manager at Paul Sartori Hospice at Home, said: “Our team’s dedication to the charity during these challenging times has shone through over the past 15 months. Donations such as this contribute so much to the sustainability of our charity. It now costs £3,000 a day to deliver the end-of-life care services in Pembrokeshire.” 

The Albert Hunt Trust was established following the success of business man Albert Hunt, who died in 1957.  He left his business jointly to two women: Florence Reakes (his niece) and Mary Coyle. Miss Reakes and Miss Coyle established the Trust in Albert Hunt’s name in 1979. Miss Reakes died in 1996 and Miss Coyle in 2000. They were both wealthy and bequeathed the bulk of their estates to the Trust, providing it with a significant endowment. This enabled the trust to increase its active support of charitable causes. Since the trust was established, significant sums have been paid as grants. The current trustees aim to stay as true as possible to the founders’ original charitable objectives.
