Pharmacist Support, the charity for UK pharmacists, has made a plea for donations to its annual TEAMGreen fundraiser in its final week.
Funds from the campaign are used to run and develop the charity’s vital support services.
The annual campaign has run for the past month, but like other charities Pharmacist Support has been hit by the coronavirus pandemic, saying fundraising has been “a big challenge” this year.
While in other years pharmacy teams would hold fundraising events during the TEAMGreen initiative, many are struggling with workload or lockdown restrictions.
Instead, Pharmacist Support is asking people who wish to show their support to make a one-off donation via the JustGiving page or by texting TG2020 to 70970 to donate £5.
Pharmacist Support is also inviting people to help raise money by taking part in its just-for-fun Big Green Quiz of the Year.
The charity said: “Thank you to everyone who has supported TEAMGreen so far. Let’s support our pharmacy family and together ensure that no one has to face difficult times alone.”
