Penally – Light up the Lanes
In the lead up to Christmas; Judy Williams of Penally decided to do something different to raise money for Paul Sartori Hospice at Home. It was like a real life advent calendar, where local residents dressed their windows with lots of lights, decorations and displayed a number. Each day throughout December a new illuminated display was revealed at 5pm.
38 residents took part in this event and many more showed an interest when they saw the wonderful displays. Judy, who volunteers in Tenby Sartori stores is hoping that this can be an annual event. They raised a fantastic £60.00 within the village.
Pat Coombs, Clinical Co-ordinator at Paul Sartori said “I think that this was a wonderful idea to bring a small community together. It is through the generosity of the Pembrokeshire people that we can continue to provide this much needed service.
lluminations to help raise vital funds
Once again Kingsmoor Close, Kilgetty had an amazing display of Christmas lights throughout December. Vic and Sheila Norman work very hard to put together this fabulous spectacle each year, all in aid of Paul Sartori Hospice at Home. In 2018 they raised a staggering £1956.09, this was their 11th year and have raised over £7000 altogether; to help fund the vital services in Pembrokeshire. They use thousands of lights to create the fantastic display, which is visited by hundreds of local residents and tourists.
The lights were switched on on Friday 1st December by Leigh Foster of Bearfourteen; and the display was open throughout the whole of December for everyone to visit and help raise money for Paul Sartori Hospice at Home. All of the promotional materials in 2018 were designed and sponsored by Bearfourteen.
“We are extremely grateful for Vic and Sheila’s support each year. They go to so much effort to create such a magnificent Christmas display of lights, all in aid of Paul Sartori Hospice at Home.” Said Phil Thompson MBE, Chair of Paul Sartori.
Sisters Rebecca and Emma Llewellin from St. Ishmaels were busy throughout the Spring and Summer, growing some fruits and vegetables. They grew carrots, runner beans, beetroot and rhubarb. The girls decided that they wanted to raise money for Paul Sartori Hospice at Home; in memory of their Great Uncle, and they sold their vegetables, flowers and fresh eggs at the end of their driveway.
This proved to be very popular with their neighbours and passers-by, and they raised a fantastic amount of £100.00. Rebecca and Emma are already busy planning a Tea Party which they would like to hold around Easter time.
