Staff at the Port of Milford Haven have selected the Paul Sartori Foundation as their 2017 Charitable Cause of the Year.
Each year, the 170-strong workforce vote for a charitable organisation within Pembrokeshire to support both financially and through a wide range of fundraising and volunteering activities.
The Paul Sartori Foundation was formed in the 1980s and offers specialised, supportive care and advice for those in the later stages of any life-limiting illness. Over the past year they have supported 820 people across Pembrokeshire, providing over 17,000 hours of care.
Charity Manager Sandra Dade welcomed the news, saying “The Paul Sartori Foundation is thrilled that the Port of Milford Haven team have selected us as their charitable cause of the year. Support from local businesses such as this helps our charity in many ways to sustain our vital Hospice at Home service. This announcement has sent a real buzz amongst our own team and we are all looking forward to working together with the Port throughout our special 35th anniversary year.”
PR and Communications Manager at the Port of Milford Haven, Anna Malloy, commented “The work of the Paul Sartori Foundation and its wonderful team of staff and volunteers is providing a much valued service across Pembrokeshire and we’re delighted to be able to support them throughout 2017. Our staff are always keen to help out with our elected charity and there will be plenty for us to get involved with over the next twelve months.”
