Today sees the start of Pharmacist Support’s annual fundraising campaign #GoGreen4PS.

The week-long event is your chance to channel your inner Shrek by asking colleagues, friends, employers and fellow employees to come together and bake, make, eat, travel, buy or wear something green to help raise vital funds for the profession’s own charity.

Pharmacist Support helps hundreds of pharmacists and their families, former pharmacists, pre-registration trainees and pharmacy students facing difficult times every year and relies entirely on donations from those within the profession to ensure that this free and confidential support continues.

It’s not too late to get involved and start raising money. You could hold a bake sale or a ‘wear green to work’ day, encourage staff to ditch the car and hop on a bike, or download the Big Green Quiz and get your friends to donate £2 to take part over lunch – as long as it’s green, anything goes!

There’s still time to download a fundraising pack, DIY collection box and poster. Tell us about your #GoGreen4PS ideas and remember to share them with Pharmacist Support on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #GoGreen4PS and @pharmasupport.

Plus you can check out what others are up to across the country using an interactive #GoGreen4PS Google map.

So what’s stopping you? GO GREEN GANG!
