Charity Celebrates 183 Years of Supporting the Pharmacy Profession

Pharmacist Support is thrilled to announce our 183rd anniversary on 15th April 2024. For well over a century, we have been dedicated to helping pharmacists and their families navigate life's challenges with essential support services.

183 years dedicated to helping pharmacists and their families navigate life’s challenges

To commemorate this significant milestone, the charity is launching a series of fundraising activities aimed at helping us achieve our ambitious target of raising £1 million over the next four years to further our mission of supporting the wellbeing of our pharmacy family. These initiatives include:

A Donations appeal: As a non-membership organisation, Pharmacist Support relies on the support of individuals and organisations to continue our important work. Every contribution, regardless of size, can make a profound difference in transforming the lives of individuals facing difficult circumstances.

TEAMGreen Fundraising: Individuals and groups are invited to join TEAMGreen and organise their own fundraising activities to support our mission. Whether it’s hosting a bake sale, running a marathon, or organising a community event, every effort counts.

Fundraising inspiration and toolkit

Legacy Giving: Wills are not just legal documents; they are vital tools for safeguarding your family’s future while offering an opportunity to champion a cause dear to your heart. Pharmacist Support encourages individuals to consider leaving a gift in their Will to support future generations of pharmacists. Legacy gifts play a crucial role in ensuring the sustainability of our charity’s vital services.

Leaving a gift in your Will to Pharmacist Support

Charity Partnerships: Partnerships enable the charity to expand its reach and enhance its support services.


We have already established successful and mutually beneficial partnerships with organisations across the sector including AAH, Alliance Healthcare, PDA and Teva UK
Chief Executive of Pharmacist Support, Danielle Hunt.

“We would like to highlight in particular the ongoing support of the PDA, who’s £1 per member initiative as well as member donations has this year topped £250,000″, commented Chief Executive of Pharmacist Support, Danielle Hunt.

“On this anniversary of our creation, we are delighted that we enter into a formal partnership with the RPS which will see the RPS support the charity with a range of initiatives and fundraising activity, further strengthening our commitment to supporting the pharmacy profession.”

Our wellbeing miles challenge!

To kick off our birthday fundraising activities the Pharmacist Support team, comprising staff and trustees, has set themselves a Wellbeing Miles Challenge! By collectively covering 26.2 miles (the length of a full marathon) through running, dog walking, and cycling, we aim to emphasise the importance of physical activity and nature in promoting mental and physical wellbeing.

Growing our financial resilience

Hunt stated “As demands upon the profession increase, it’s likely that demand for the charity’s assistance will also grow. As a charity we aspire to grow our financial resilience to give pharmacists the support to thrive throughout their career (and beyond into retirement).

“We are immensely proud to celebrate 183 years of serving the pharmacy profession and our anniversary initiatives reflect our ongoing commitment to supporting the wellbeing of pharmacists and their families. We invite everyone to join us in marking this special occasion and support our vital work to ensure that no one in our pharmacy family has to face challenging times alone.”
