Celebrating 183 years of support

Celebrating 183 years of support

Pharmacist Support, the profession’s independent charity, celebrated its 183rd anniversary is on 15th April 2024. For almost two centuries, Pharmacist Support has been dedicated to helping pharmacists and their families navigate life's challenges with essential support services.

To commemorate this significant milestone, Pharmacist Support launched a series of fundraising activities aimed at helping them achieve their ambitious target of raising £1 million over the next four years to further their mission of supporting the wellbeing of their 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 their 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 Pharmacist Support's mission. Whether it's hosting a bake sale, running a marathon, or organising a community event, every effort counts.

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 Pharmacist Support's vital services.

Charity partnerships

Partnerships enable the charity to expand its reach and enhance its support services. Pharmacist Support has already established successful and mutually beneficial partnerships with organisations across the sector including AAH, Alliance Healthcare, PDA, RPS and Teva UK. The charity is keen to establish further charity partnerships and encourage like-minded organisations looking to further their reach and impact within the profession to get in touch.

Why your support is needed

As demands upon the profession increase, it’s likely that demand for the charity’s assistance will also grow. As a non-membership, independent charity, Pharmacist Support aspires to grow their financial resilience to give pharmacists, trainees and MPharm students the support to thrive throughout their career (and beyond into retirement).

Let’s get together to join our profession’s charity to mark this special occasion and support their vital work to ensure that no one in our pharmacy family has to face challenging times alone.
