Pharmacies raise Christmas spirit and vital funds

Over 200 Lloydspharmacy stores across the UK have embraced the festive cheer and put their hearts into fundraising by dressing up as reindeers, having cracker pulling contests and Christmas jumper days.

The pharmacies were eager to involve customers in the Christmas-themed fun which helped to raise vital funds for our Mending Broken Hearts Appeal. Lloydspharmacy has supported Mending Broken Hearts since September 2010 and employees across the UK have helped to raise a huge £220,000.

Amit Aggarwal, our Head of Corporate Partnerships at the BHF, said: “We would like to say a big thank you to each and every pharmacy for their fantastic efforts in raising money for the BHF. Every penny that Lloydspharmacy raises will go towards our Mending Broken Hearts Appeal for which the goal is simple - to fund the research that could literally begin to ‘mend broken hearts’ and give hope to millions worldwide.”
