Four pharmacists in one car arrive at the finish line

Pharmacists Kirit Patel MBE (CEO of Day Lewis) Peter Cattee (CEO at PCT Healthcare), Manvir Patel (Managing Director of Manichem) and Hiten Patel (Managing Director of PharmaPlus Ltd) embarked on an epic journey in April in the name of charity. The pharmacists travelled through 17 countries overland from the UK to India and arrived safely at their final destination, Ahmedabad on 12th June.

Kirit Patel says: “I am glad we have finally managed to arrive safely to Gujarat. We faced enough challenges on the way here, both internally and externally. I’d like to thank you all for your support along the way. Your messages helped me stay positive, especially during some challenging moments.”

So far the team has raised £455 for the charity and they are still welcoming donations for Pharmacist Support on their Justgiving page:

More information on their journey can be found on the Day Lewis and the Pharmaplus  Facebook pages as well as on Hiten Patel’s blog.

We are thrilled that these pharmacists have undertaken a challenge for the charity. Every year we receive more enquiries and requests for assistance and the money raised will help support those pharmacists, pre-reg and pharmacy students in need.
