There are many charities we support each year and we like to get involved with local events when we can.
This is the next event and is being headed up by Jemma, Leila and Jackie.
Pier to Pier 2017
Sunday 2 April 2017 10:00 – 15:00
On the 2nd of April, some of the staff from Holland Pharmacy are taking part in the Pier to Pier walk to raise money for St Helena’s Hospice. It’s a 14 mile walk between the Clacton to Walton Piers and we’re very excited to be taking part.
Last year we raised a massive £837.85, but we’d love to beat it!
This years target is ONE THOUSAND POUND and we’d be very grateful if you could help us raise this money to go to the people who really need it, in their greatest time of need.

This money will help people we support in your community who are affected by life-limiting illness like Alan, his daughter Michelle says:
“The hospice was there for my mum and dad 24 hours a day, mum knew she could ring in the middle of the night if she was worried about my dad. The nurses were kind, caring and professional. I take part in the walk with my daughter, Talia, to help raise money for the hospice. It’s not until you have experience of the services that you can appreciate how valuable their work is – not only to the patient but also their family members, like myself.”
We provide our services for free, but it does come at a cost – over £8.7million a year, by taking part in Pier to Pier 2017 you can help us meet that cost.
