PORT FUNDS REFLEXOLOGY SESSIONS AT PEMBROKESHIRE CANCER SUPPORT (October 2016)

 

Cancer sufferers at Pembrokeshire Cancer Support are to receive reflexology sessions thanks to a funding boost from the Port of Milford Haven.

 

The charity was selected by staff at the Port to be its official Charitable Cause of the Year throughout 2016 and has so far benefitted from fundraising activities, donations and a freshly painted charity shop.

 

Reflexology is a specific pressure technique that works on precise reflex points on the feet and, as a holistic healing therapy, can help relax, balance and improve nerve and blood supply to the area of the body that needs it. Some people report that they can sleep better and feel less stressed after the sessions.

 

Lyn Neville, Charity Co-ordinator at Pembrokeshire Cancer Support, said “We would like to thank the Port of Milford Haven for their continuing support and for helping us to continue this essential service for cancer sufferers and carers who gain a real benefit from this therapy.”

 

Commenting on the donation, PR and Communications Manager at the Port Anna Malloy, said “It’s been really interesting to learn what sort of benefits reflexology can offer cancer patients and we hope that our support can go some way towards helping those who receive it. Pembrokeshire Cancer Support is doing a wonderful job in supporting their users and providing a vital service in the community.”

 

As a Trust Port, the Port of Milford Haven helps a wide range of charities and community organisations which seek to improve the economic and social wellbeing of those living in the Port region.

Each year Pembroke Power Station staff nominates a local charity to support.  For the past year the stations chosen charity has been Pembrokeshire Cancer Support. Teams from the site have been busy raising money through sponsored events, raffles, the weekly football club and a moustache removal.

To celebrate this achievement, an extra £2000 was added to the money raised by staff for Pembrokeshire Cancer Support.

Andrew Morgan, Pembroke Station Manager said,” This is a remarkable achievement for the site and this was a tremendous way for us to acknowledge the fantastic effort of all the staff in raising funds for this worthy cause during an extremely busy and challenging time,"

Pembrokeshire Cancer Support Manager Lyn Neville said,” We were delighted to receive the donation, this will go towards much needed cancer support and services to local people.”

PROMS IN THE CASTLE - CHEQUE PRESENTATION - NOVEMBER 2011

Following the very successful (but a little damp !) Proms in the Castle Event, held in association with South Hook LNG in September, the organisers were delighted to announce and present £2,000 each to the three charitable organisations involved, namely Pembrokeshire Cancer Support, Macmillan Cancer Support and the Pembroke Castle Charitable Trust.  The event attracted a Proms audience of over 900 people, who braved the weather and helped raise many thousands of pounds for charity.

PROMS IN THE CASTLE - 3rd SEPTEMBER, 2011

Proms in the Castle went ahead on Saturday 3rd September and as you can see below turned out to be very wet !!  This did not dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd who turned out for the event.  Special Thanks must go to South Hook LNG who sponsored the whole event, Phil Thompson (representing Macmillan) who organised the event and Jon Williams who runs the Castle.  Pembrokeshire Cancer Support was the nominated charity of South Hook LNG. As you can see from the photograph above, all the meetings to arrange the event were held in bright sunshine !!

The day of the event was very wet but the "British Spirit" kicked in and all who attended had a great time.  One gazebo had a table with Champagne buckets and a candelabra !! The choirs who started the event, Tempus and Neyland Ladies were excellent.  The Cardiff Philarmonic Orchestra gave a superb performance which was topped off by fireworks in time to the "1812 Overture".  Everybody was flag waving and feeling very patriotic to "Land of Hope and Glory".  On the day the Charity was represented by Lyn (Coordinator), Geraldine (Support Worker) and Kevin (very handy-man).  Lyn gave an interview on the day to Radio Pembrokeshire, who must also be thanked for their total support of the event.
