Mayor Supports Hospice at Home Charity


Pembrokeshire-based Hospice at Home charity Paul Sartori Foundation recently benefitted from fundraising arranged by the Mayor of Pembroke. Dennis Evans, elected as Mayor of Pembroke for a second term, 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 president of the seniors section at Rosemarket Golf Club, where his president’s charity golf day raised over £400 for the charity; collections and raffles held throughout the year raised an extra £250.

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, and during March a parade of 300 RAF Air Cadets and a band of 60-plus musicians – this raised £355.


Dennis also applied for and obtained £500 funding from Pembroke Power Station, and he forwarded a further £93 from his mayor’s allowance to the charity. A recent presentation was held in the Pembroke Town Hall at which he handed over a cheque for £2,024 to Toni Dorkings, community fundraiser for Paul Sartori Foundation.

Dennis 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 does tremendous work within the communities of Pembrokeshire.”
