CarePlus Pharmacy, Ireland’s leading chain of independent pharmacies, has joined forces with Barnardos to raise at least €25,000 to support families in need this Christmas.
Barnardos is delighted the partner with CarePlus Pharmacy, Ireland’s leading chain of independent pharmacies, to raise at least €25,000 to support families in need this Christmas.
Alison Curtis and little helpers Sophie and Michael helped to launch the campaign which is being run in each of the 50 pharmacies in the CarePlus network. The campaign will involve fundraising initiatives by staff and customers and every CarePlus pharmacy has a special Barnardos post box in store to also collect gift set donations for Barnardos children and teenagers.
CarePlus will also run a dedicated Barnardos Celebration Day across the network of pharmacies on Friday 14th December where all the pharmacies will host fundraising events for their customers.
With the majority of CarePlus Pharmacies located near a Barnardos centre this means that that almost all funds raised locally will stay locally, to help provide vital supports and services for vulnerable families in the community and surrounds this Christmas.
Commercial Director with CarePlus Pharmacy Group, Niamh Lynch said: “We are delighted to partner with Barnardos this year with the aim of raising to at least €25,000 to support families in need this Christmas. Staff at our 50 pharmacies nationwide will be starting some great initiatives over the coming days and weeks with the aim of helping the wonderful charity, Barnardos. We are hoping that our valued customers will join in the campaign too.”
Barnardos Director of Fundraising, Mary Gamble said: “We are delighted to partner with CarePlus Pharmacy who have set themselves an amazing challenge - to raise up to €25,000 to support children and families this Christmas. Barnardos currently works with over 15,300 children and families in 40 centres across Ireland - additional pressure is put on all families at Christmas time but it weighs heavier on those who are on the brink. Every child deserves to enjoy the magic of Christmas, and with your help we can ensure the children we work with will. Drop into your local CarePlus Pharmacy to lend your support between now and Christmas.”
