On Thursday 4th July Pharmacist Support joined representatives from the pharmacy community for the 2018 C+D Awards. This years event was held at the prestigious Intercontinental Hotel in London’s Mayfair, where we were once again delighted to be recognised as the Award’s nominated charity.
The evening was hosted by comedian Meera Syal, who oversaw the awards presentations that included a new category recognising those who have gone “Above and Beyond” the call of duty to look after their customers. This final award was presented by our very own Chief Executive Diane Leicester-Hallam and was voted for by the public.
As well as the awards there was the charity raffle in aid of Pharmacist Support which raised an impressive £1940 from attendees, eager to get their hands on some fabulous prizes: a London Theatre Experience, tickets to the UK’s number 1 boutique festival Bestival in Dorset, and Spa goodies from Soap and Glory kindly donated by Boots.
“We were absolutely delighted by the funds raised on the night and would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated and entered the raffle” said Diane. “We would also like to thank the team at C&D for their continued support of the charity. Pharmacist Support relies on the generosity of those in the profession – individuals and organisations – in order to continue to provide our free and confidential support.”
C+D editor James Waldron commented: “C+D is always proud to partner with Pharmacist Support for our awards. No other charity does as much to support C+D readers, and we are honoured to continue to be involved. At this challenging time for the sector Pharmacist Support’s vital work has never been more important, and we are grateful to everyone who donated on the night.”
