Fundraising

We would love individual pharmacists to take on the Benevolent Fund as their charity. If you are taking part in a cycle or a marathon, make the fund your charity.

As we are so isolated as a profession, we love a good get together, so why not organise a dinner or a barbeque in aid of the fund.

If you are asked to speak to a community group, ask them to make a donation to the fund in return.

If you have any great ideas, let us know!
