The Capital Chemist Community Programme
of the most enjoyable and rewarding aspects of being a community pharmacist is
to interact with members of our local communities. Many of our clients become
even close personal friends and it is through them that we become aware of and
learn more about
community needs beyond the mere provision of pharmaceutical and health
why at Capital Chemist we have developed a community programme over the years
those needs, to lend a helping hand to those organisations and individuals in
real need of financial
assistance. To be able to do this we eschew conventional advertising and
instead divert a percentage
of our profit to fund this community programme. This now amounts to over
annum and we see this as very much a win-win situation for all concerned.
its inception over two decades ago we estimate the Capital Chemist Community Programme
has donated somewhere between four and five million dollars and helped, at last
local and national organisations as well as needy individuals. We believe this
level of community support
by any pharmacy group anywhere makes us unique in Australia and as a Canberra
is something Canberra can take great pride in.
Capital Chemist Community Programme is evolving and expanding year by year as
of our community change. But it is only made possible, of course, with the
support of you, our
clients, and for that we are very grateful. Help us and we can help you, simple
thank you Canberra – we couldn’t do it without you!
