Port of Milford Haven

Charitable Cause of the Year

In 2014, the Port introduced a scheme in which its staff could vote for a Pembrokeshire charity or community organisation to become its official Charitable Cause of the Year. The chosen organisation typically receives both financial and in-kind support from the Port, for example donations, fundraising activities and staff volunteers.

The following organisations have been the Port's Charitable Cause of the Year:

2019 - Alzheimer's Society Cymru

The Alzheimer’s Society campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure, and supports people living with dementia. In Pembrokeshire, the Alzheimer’s Society has a Dementia Connect service which provides practical advice and information for anyone affected by dementia. Furthermore, a Side by Side service is available in Milford Haven to match people with dementia with dedicated volunteers, enabling them to keep doing the things they love.
