Port offers a helping hand to Paul Sartori Foundation

Published

on

The Paul Sartori Foundation, a charity offering hospice at home care, has been
given a financial donation from the Port of Milford Haven which will fund its clinical
running costs for a week.

The charity is continuing to offer clinical services, working alongside the NHS, to help
with the discharge of patients providing equipment and specialist care in their homes
during the Covid-19 pandemic. However, they have found themselves in a
vulnerable position as their shops are currently closed and fundraising events have
been cancelled, meaning 60% of their revenue has been lost.

Anna Malloy, Stakeholder Engagement and Communications Manager at the Port,
said “We have formed close ties with the Paul Sartori Foundation since our staff
voted them as our ‘charity of the year’ in 2017 and several staff voiced their
eagerness to help the charity, having had personal experience of their professional
service. We really wanted to help in some small way, especially as much of their
means of fundraising have disappeared.”

In addition to the corporate donation, staff at the Port are finding new ways to raise
money for the charity and have set up a Just Giving page where people can donate
funds: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/port-of-milford-haven-team2
David Evans, Vice Chair of the Paul Sartori Foundation and Chair of the Audit and
Finance Sub-committee, said “During these difficult times we are working very
closely with Hywel Dda University Health Board in the care of patients living in the
later stages of life. We have seen our hours spent caring for patients in their own
homes rise by 25% year on year. We have always provided such a valuable service
to families in Pembrokeshire and will continue to do so with such fantastic support
from businesses like the Port.”

The Paul Sartori Foundation was established back in 1981 and is now a vital support
service in Pembrokeshire to those in the later stages of any life-limiting illness. The
team provides care to patients and support to families 365 days of the year,
operating on a 24/7 on-call basis. At the start of April, 30 patients received 348 hours
of care over a one-week period and during the past fortnight 52 items of equipment
have been delivered to 25 patients to promote dignity and independence throughout
the end of life period.

Police investigate ‘Chinese government vehicle’ spotted near Puma Oil Terminal

Published

on

POLICE have confirmed that they are conducting “the appropriate enquiries” after a suspicious vehicle was spotted in the vicinity of Puma Oil Terminal on Saturday afternoon (Aug 8).

Following a tip off a Herald reporter was dispatched to the area, and saw a black Volvo SUV with three IC5 (Korean, Japanese or Chinese) looking males inside the vehicle. The vehicle had diplomatic number plates identifying that it belonged to the Chinese government.

However, a DVLA check suggested that the plates were registered to a BMW and not the Volvo they were displayed upon.

South Hook LNG security was notified as a precaution.

A police spokesman said: “Members of the public are advised to contact the police to report any suspicious activity or incidents.”

Both the UK and US governments are currently on alert following incidents of spying relating to key infrastructure, computer systems and state secrets by the Chinese authorities.

Tenby: Police investigate overnight burglaries and theft

Published

on

POLICE are investigating two burglaries and a theft which occurred sometime overnight 9th/10th August in Tenby.

At approximately 2am this morning the RNLI lifeboat station, on Castle Hill, was broken into and money taken from the charity donation box.

Sometime overnight the padlock on the charity box for the Shipwrecked Mariners Society on Castle Square was broken and money taken from within.

Also overnight a window was forced open at the Denis Café, Castle Beach, and the till was missing. The till was later found with the money removed.

PC Garland said: “The three incidents are currently being linked. Having to close to deal with the clean-up of this type of incident is difficult for any business but especially so at this time. The two charities rely on donations to keep going and being a crew member of the Tenby Lifeboat I know what important work they due for the local community and for visitors who get into difficulty in the sea. I would appeal to anyone with any information to come forward and contact police.”
