The members of the Clanwilliam Pharmacist Awards Committee are delighted to present to the Pharmacy Benevolent Fund the total sum of €90,156.50. This is the total sum of proceeds raised from the Awards ceremony in November and is a record amount for the Awards’ ten year history.

The 2016 Awards were our biggest yet and proved to be a fantastic evening of celebration; we hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did”.
