Tonight's reggae Legend gig to raise funds for Sartori trip

A Haverfordwest woman, set to trek the Himalayas for charity, has turned to her love of reggae to help raise funds for the trip.

A life-long fan of reggae, Pat has arranged for Legend – the internationally acclaimed Bob Marley tribute band – to play a fundraising show at Pill Social Centre, Milford Haven, tonight May 17.

Pat Coombs, 51, is the hospice at home co-ordinator and equipment facilitator for the Paul Sartori Foundation in Haverfordwest.

Along with 34 other intrepid walkers – who each have to raise £2,800 to take part – Pat will tackle an 11-day adventure in the Asian mountain range to collect vital cash for the foundation’s “hospice at home” service. Between them, the group are likely to raise a whopping £30,000.

“I was talked in to doing it,” joked Pat. “I think it will be fun and a huge achievement. I’ll probably never do anything like it again.”

Pat is training for the gruelling event through “lots of walking”, going to the gym and aqua aerobics.

“It’s a lot of work, but getting fit is a big added benefit,” she said.

Tickets for tonight's gig cost £16. To buy tickets call Pat on 07870 829155 or email pat@paulsartori.org

What is the point at the WT promoting this event at 1pm on the day the event is going to happen ? Most people will not read this until the event has passed. Just like the earlier story of the skate park event, publishing the story on the same day the event takes place is a waste of time. Why do the WT keep on doing this ? Is is because they are not getting any advertising revenue from it and therefore spitefully delay the release of the story till the actual day of the event to minimise the impact! Or is it that the organisers of these events are so short sighted as to not inform the press till it is too late ? I would love to know the answer to this question.

Very little happens in Pembrokeshire until it has happened! All we generally get to hear about is past and not forthcoming events. The advertising machine of this county sucks.
