A Family Fun Day was held recently to raise vital funds for the Pembrokeshire based Hospice at Home Charity.

Long-time Paul Sartori Foundation supporter, Paige Allen, decided to arrange the successful event on Saturday, June 24, in memory of her mum. Paige’s mum and family were supported by the charity in the last few weeks of her life.

The Family Fun Day was held at Hucclecote RFC in Gloucester, and the big day consisted of a Rugby 7s tournament, a silent auction, a raffle, family entertainment, live music, evening disco and lots of food stalls.

The event raised a staggering £1,680.66 for the Hospice at Home services.

Paige said: “This charity helped my mum massively when she was poorly, especially in her last few weeks of life.

“This year marks 10 years since she passed, so I was just hoping to raise as much money as possible. The day and the amount raised, exceeded my expectations completely!

“I would like to say a big thank you to all those, who not only attended my charity event, but to my lovely friends who helped organise it too.”

Paul Sartori Hospice at Home provides a range of services to Pembrokeshire people living in the final stages of a life-limiting illness, including home nursing care, equipment loan, complementary therapy, bereavement and counselling support, physiotherapy, advance care planning and training.

The services provided by the Paul Sartori Hospice at Home enable people in the later stages of any life-limiting illness to be cared for and to die at home with dignity, independence, pain free and surrounded by those they hold most dear, if that is their wish.

All of the services are free of charge and are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, thanks to the generosity of the Pembrokeshire Community.
