Boots held their annual Pre-Registration Let’s Connect event in February and once again Pharmacist Support were invited along to run wellbeing workshops and host an information stand, sharing details of our support with all 400 Boots trainees from across the UK.
As part of the training event, the company hosts a gala dinner for attendees. For the second year in a row Pharmacist Support were delighted to be selected as the organisations nominated Charity for the evening.
Hosted by Boots Chief Pharmacist Marc Donovan, the dinner raised a staggering £2,235 for the charity by raffling off a range of prizes, from some much sought after Adele tickets, to books and vouchers. Commenting on the charity’s involvement, Marc Donovan said:
“We were delighted to welcome Pharmacist Support to our recent pre-registration conference and once again have them as our charity partner at the gala dinner. We appreciate the work they do in supporting our pharmacists and pre-reg trainees and feel it is important to include a wellbeing workshop for all of our pre-reg trainees which as always is very well received.”
Pharmacist Support were delighted to learn that its wellbeing workshops had been voted one of the best parts of the two day conference by the pre-reg trainees. Responding to this feedback Diane Leicester-Hallam, Chief Executive of Pharmacist Support commented:
“It’s really important that pre-reg’s get the help and support they need. We understand the pressure that this group are under and it’s good to know that our wellbeing workshops are having a positive effect on the Boots let’s connect attendees.”
We’d like to thank the team at Boots for their continued support and look forward to joining them for this event again next year!
