We couldn't do it without you!
We’re a small charity, but we have big aspirations. Our vision is that no one in our pharmacy family will face challenging times without us by their side.
As an independent charity, we rely on the generosity of pharmacists and pharmacy organisations to accomplish our work providing free and confidential support. This is where you come in!
You can help us support our pharmacy family by fundraising on our behalf. Fundraising is a simple and fun way to connect with your local community while raising money. There are many activities you can organise to help fundraise for Pharmacist Support – take a look at our Just Giving page for some inspiration!
Whichever route you choose and no matter how large or small your donation, it will make a real difference to the lives of pharmacists and their families in times of need.
The Pharmacist Support team is here to help you make the most of your fundraiser. Get in touch with us using the form below for advice and assistance. Please remember to stay safe during the covid-19 outbreak and follow government advice on social distancing.
As members of the Fundraising Standards board, you can give with confidence and be assured that your money will be used honestly and properly.
Our Fundraising Superhero
Hello my name is Kathryn Murray and I’m Lead Clinical Trials Pharmacist at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board and a Pharmacist Support Charity Ambassador.
On hearing that most Pharmacist Support (PS) fundraising events (including the London Marathon) had been cancelled due to the lockdown and reading reports of the abuse and death of some pharmacists on social media, I was moved to fundraise for PS by taking part in the 2.6 Challenge.
To mark the London Marathon, that was due to take place on 26th April 2020, I decided to run a marathon over 10 days. I hadn’t run for 5 months so this was a challenge for me. I’m also busier at work than I have ever been as I’m leading a team of clinical trials pharmacists and technicians at Cardiff and Vale UHB who are rapidly setting up clinical trials investigating treatments for COVID-19 coronavirus. The pressure at work had started to have an impact on my mental wellbeing and I was feeling anxious and not sleeping properly. Starting running almost every day as part of this challenge, sometimes in my lunch-break, helped me rediscover how good running is for my mental wellbeing. I completed my marathon on 5th May and smashed my original £260 fundraising target! To celebrate I ran my final 2.6 miles around University Hospital of Wales campus, where I work, dressed as Wonder Woman to honour the pharmacy heroes working throughout the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
I have now started another fundraising challenge for Pharmacist Support – ‘500 at 50 lockdown special’. Instead of going on a driving holiday to the Loire Valley in France to celebrate my 50th birthday in July, I’m going to run, walk and cycle 500 miles around Cardiff in the 10 weeks running up to my birthday.
