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

Billy released a 26-track album, called On to the Past, and the money raised from the sale of the CDs and his gigs benefitted the Pembrokeshire-based Hospice at Home service.

He raised a staggering £2,250 and recently visited Paul Sartori House in Winch Lane, Haverfordwest, to present a cheque. Toni Dorkings, Paul Sartori community fundraiser, said: “We are so 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 services that we do.”

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 Paul Sartori Foundation. So I wanted to give something back for the excellent work they do in our community.”
