Pharmacist Support is delighted to announce the appointment of our first charity Fundraiser. Petra van den Houten joins the team from Redeye – a not-for-profit organisation set up to support and build networks for photographers at every level. As Development Manager she was responsible for researching and developing new revenue streams with a focus on fundraising through individual giving, sponsorship as well as corporate and institutional membership.
“We are delighted to have Petra on board” commented Charity Manager Diane Leicester-Hallam. “The charity has been around for some 170 years and we have set ourselves some challenging income targets to ensure that this support continues for another 170. Petra’s role will be to involve pharmacy organisations, pharmacists of all levels and settings, trainees and pharmacy students in our efforts to ensure a sustainable future. With our 175th anniversary fast approaching; we hope all in the profession will join in our celebrations and help us raise those crucial funds.”
