Mo­tor­sport Club grate­ful to phar­macy pro­gram

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - OPINION -

THE Dou­glas Shire Mo­tor Sports As­so­ci­a­tion re­cently re­ceived $500 from LiveLife Phar­ma­cies as part of their LiveLife Com­mu­nity Sup­port Pro­gram.

Launched in July 2016, the pro­gram is run across 10 re­gions in Queens­land and New South Wales and to date has pro­vided more than $70,000 in fund­ing to com­mu­nity groups.

Mon­ica Staal from the LiveLife Phar­macy Group said “Each month two com­mu­nity groups are cho­sen to re­ceive funds from their lo­cal LiveLife Phar­ma­cies and in store LiveLife cus­tomers are asked to se­lect, by way of to­kens, which com­mu­nity group will re­ceive the high­est amount of fund­ing in that month.

“LiveLife Phar­ma­cies are also able to pro­mote the ef­forts of the lo­cal com­mu­nity groups to cus­tomers shop­ping with LiveLife Phar­ma­cies,” she said.

In April the Dou­glas Shire Mo­tor Sports As­so­ci­a­tion was one of the com­mu­nity groups pro­moted and re­ceived $500 .

“On be­half of the club I would like to thank LiveLife Phar­ma­cies for their do­na­tion via their Com­mu­nity Sup­port Pro­gram,” said pres­i­dent Bob Er­rey. “Be­ing a smaller sport­ing club, it can be hard to raise funds nec­es­sary to keep the club run­ning.

“Ear­lier this year the slasher that we use to main­tain our track died and so we are look­ing to buy an­other one. They don’t come cheap so this money will cer­tainly help with that pur­chase.”

Com­mu­nity groups look­ing to par­tic­i­pate in the Com­mu­nity Sup­port pro­gram can nom­i­nate their groups via the LiveLife Phar­macy web­site.
