Pharmacist Support has teamed up with Bentley Motors and Care2Save to offer people the chance to win a Bentley while raising funds to assist pharmacists and their families, retired pharmacists, pre-registration trainees and pharmacy students in their times of need.
Proceeds from ticket sales for the 'Bentley by me' lottery will be split evenly between the profession’s charity and Care2Save Charitable Trust – a global initiative, chosen by Bentley Motors as one of their charities of the year, to raise awareness and funds for palliative and hospice care.
The winner of the prize draw will get the chance to design their dream Bentley from a selection of exterior colours and interior finishes. Alternatively, should a cash prize be preferred, the winner can still enjoy the excitement of designing a beautiful car that Bentley can then sell on their behalf.
Pharmacist Support chief executive Diane Leicester-Hallam said “By entering the draw, donors will be helping to support the hundreds of pharmacists and their families, former pharmacists and pharmacy students that contact us every year facing difficult life challenges, as well as improve the quality of life of those facing a serious illness.
"The charity has a long history of providing convalescent support to those in the profession and their families, so we are delighted to be partnering with Bentley and Care2Save to present our supporters with this incredible prize, never before offered by Bentley Motors."
"We hope that the money raised from this draw will help us achieve the £175,000 fundraising target we have set ourselves in this our 175th anniversary year.”
Pharmacist Support has recently appointed two new trustees to its board. New recruits Stephen Lutener, director of regulation and support at PSNC and Stephen Riley, senior prescribing advisor at Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit join existing trustees Professor Peter Noyce (chair), Anita Cawley (vice chair), Robbie Turner, Jonathan Mason, Sally Atkinson and Sunil Lakhani.
