Building a healthier community cheque presentation 2012

Annual donations presented to local organisations.

UFS Pharmacies made a big start to their 140-year celebrations by distributing over $50,000 to a number of local charities and organisations.

The Building a Healthier Community program has generated over $200,000 during the past ten years and over 50 groups have benefited from the membership fee disbursement.

UFS Pharmacies members not only gain great savings, they also know a percentage of their joining fee is going to the worthwhile cause of their choice.
