Friendly as­sis­tance for Telethon

Pharmacy Daily - - News -

WESTERN Aus­tralia-based Friendlies Phar­macy got be­hind Perth fundraiser Telethon this year by rais­ing $27,625.10.

Friendlies Phar­macy achieved the fig­ure thanks to the sup­port of cus­tomers who pur­chased a Fat Cat Doll or HBF Ted at Friendlies over the last year.

The phar­macy said it had Fat Cat dolls avail­able in store all year round.

Telethon pro­vides equip­ment for chil­dren in hos­pi­tal, crit­i­cal ser­vices for chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties and life-chang­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren and this year raised a to­tal of $38 mil­lion for the cause.

The gen­er­ous WA com­mu­nity has con­trib­uted a stag­ger­ing $300 mil­lion to Telethon since 1968.

Pic­tured is Luke McKin­non, Head of Phar­macy, hand­ing over the gi­gan­tic nov­elty cheque at the Telethon event on Sun.
