A Pembrokeshire based Hospice at Home charity have recently celebrated their 40th Anniversary year. Paul Sartori Foundation held numerous fundraising events throughout their anniversary year, with the aim to raise “£40k for 40 years.” The epic fundraising year ended with a successful Ruby Ball, held at Wolfscastle Country Hotel & Spa in Wolfscastle on Saturday 1st April 2023.
Tenby-born Actor Charles Dale, who is best known for appearing in the BBC 1 series Casualty, and ITV soap opera Coronation Street, greeted all guests as they arrived. Charles was a Paul Sartori Patron for their 40th Anniversary, he is a passionate supporter of the charity and has personal experience of how valuable the services offered by Paul Sartori Foundation are. Symphony Sid & the Swing Kings entertained the party goers throughout the evening with their amazing array of music, also the charity held a successful auction and the 40th Anniversary raffle was drawn on the night.
Local accomplished speaker, Brian Harries (BEM) was the auctioneer for the night, along with Kevin Jones and the auction raised £5,395. In total the 40th Anniversary Ruby Ball raised a staggering £12,000 and an additional £6,722 was raised from the 40th Anniversary raffle.
Toni Dorkings, Community Fundraiser at Paul Sartori Foundation said “The Ruby Ball was such a huge success and I’d like to thank everyone who attended, helped out and supported the event with auction and raffle prizes. The venue and the food was fabulous, and the staff at the Wolfscastle Country Hotel and Spa were very attentive.”
