Pembrokeshire Classic Car Run.
On the 2nd September hundreds of cars attended the Pembrokeshire Classic Car Run which starts at The Pembrokeshire County Showground, Haverfordwest. Now in its 21st anniversary year this is a popular Annual event. Vehicles and motorbikes of varying ages from all over the UK took part. They ranged from cars and bikes from the early days of motoring, to kit cars and sporty hatchbacks of the 21st century.
The run itself started and finished at the Pembrokeshire County Showground and circumnavigated the County, following a route of about 85 miles on A-class roads, including a halfway stop at the Dyfed Shire Horse Farm and a motorcade around the Historic town of Cardigan.
The Classic Car Run organisers Jeff and Sian Edwards said “We are extremely grateful to all sponsors, in particular the Western Telegraph, The Dyfed Shire Horse Farm, the marshals who make the run possible and Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society for the use of their magnificent showground and their general help and assistance.”
“We are really pleased that The Pembrokeshire Classic Car Run has chosen The Paul Sartori Foundation as their charity this year” said Phil Thompson MBE, Chair of Paul Sartori Foundation.
The Temple Bar is a family friendly pub located in Amroth, it is situated very close to the beach with its patio facing directly onto the golden sands. They have been busy throughout September, holding various events to raise funds for Paul Sartori Hospice at Home services. They had a raffle every Tuesday evening during their Bingo, and a Quiz and raffle on a Wednesday evening.
“Ian Wilkinson, owner of The Temple Bar has done a fantastic job arranging these events, and we are very pleased that he chose to support The Paul Sartori Foundation” said Lisa Wells, Income Generation Team Administrator.
Fiona Ramsden, Manager of Tenby and Narberth Sartori Stores said “We are so grateful of The Temple Bars support by holding all these events. Dave Richardson, Roy Lewis, Marion Lewis and Mike Kingston were the quiz masters who also did a great job. Raising over £500 is a fantastic achievement.”
“Every penny raised is used to put support back into our community. This fantastic amount could allow us to purchase a pressure relieving mattress or provide two Registered Nurses for 3 nights of care. Thank you for choosing to donate your funds to Paul Sartori Foundation” said Pat Coombs, Clinical Co-Ordinator at Paul Sartori.
West Wales karting.
The Paul Sartori Challenge took place from 9th October to 21st October at West Wales Karting, the event was again sponsored by Gravells Kia of Narberth. This year we had a new perpetual shield for the highest fundraiser, which was donated by Val Harrold.
Val is an extremely hard-working volunteer for the Paul Sartori Foundation. “My late husband, Adrian Harrold was very keen on all motorsport, whether participating or spectating, and I decided that I wanted to donate this shield to be awarded to the highest fundraiser each year in his memory.” Said Val Harrold.
The winners of the shield this year were Café Morillo’s and they raised a fantastic total of £736.61. Their team consisted of Colin Mason, John Mason, James Williams and Damien Holmes.
“We would like to thank all of the teams involved in this year’s Paul Sartori Challenge, this outstanding event has raised an amazing £7637.45 to help support the Paul Sartori Hospice at Home services”. Said Lisa Wells, Income Generation Team Administrator for Paul Sartori.
