Charity Trustees Meeting with PHODU Team
All Trustees attended the PHODU this week to meet with the nursing team to update each other. Meetings take place on a regular basis so that the charity can respond to any needs identified by the nursing team and share information on the fundraising effort.
Topics included updates on funds raised and currently held for the PHODU by our charity . We also discussed our financial support for patients struggling with their illness, a new information video provided by the charity and plans to purchase computer tablets for staff use.

Our charity shop overheads are kept to a minimum to ensure public donations go where they are needed.
Bernie and Trish George were thrilled and delighted recently to receive their British Empire Medals on behalf of the charity at a ceremony held at County Hall. It was lovely to be hosted by the chairman of the County Council Aden Brinn and his consort Rose Blackburn who made everyone feel very special.
The Queen's representative Sara Edwards, the Lord Lieutenant of Dyfed presented the couple with their medals which was so fitting as she had opened the new Cancer Day Unit back in 2017 so she knew lots about the work of our charity.
It was great that the other charity trustees (Margaret Bond, Wendy Bradshaw, Neil Evans) were there plus Shendy Evans and Bernie and Trish's son Ryan and his wife Alexis.
Thanks for your support guys. What a wonderful experience!
Over 300 guests joined us at the official opening of the new
Pembrokeshire Haematology and Oncology Day Unit
on the 28th January 2017
Our charity was delighted to part fund the project to the tune of £207,000.
We also agreed to fund the costs of two beautiful glass wall mountings which are located in the main treatment area plus a number of wall prints.

We wish them well.
