Charity partner at LloydsPharmacy
At LloydsPharmacy Ireland, we strive to create a workplace environment that provides equality, diversity, and employee support at every given opportunity. Our goal is to nurture an environment that is open, honest, and free of bias and where we align to make better health possible to the customers and patients we serve across communities in Ireland.
Charity “Giving” aligns with our Mission
As a company, we want to make a positive difference in Ireland. The Charity Programme gives our colleagues and customers the chance to support a cause that is close to their hearts and benefits the local communities where we work and live.
How we select our preferred Charity
We value what our employees value and hence collectively we can do good, give back and change lives. We invite our employees to select their preferred charity, so it has personal meaning to them. The charity with the largest votes is nominated as the preferred charity for an agreed time, often two years, and becomes the sole focus and official charity for our collective fundraising efforts. To ensure we optimise impact, we focus efforts and resources on this one charity.
How our employees participate
We encourage all employees across all our business units,whether in Pharmacy, in our Warehouses and Support Office, to organise andparticipate in fundraising activities and events to raise vital funds for the Charity. We invite members from various departments to champion the fundraising initiatives amongst their teams to encourage engagement and success. In addition to employee and customer contributions, the Company will often support with additional donations to help us reach our ambitious fundraising targets.

LloydsPharmacy is a leading pharmacy chain in Ireland with 89 pharmacies serving local communities & providing the utmost standard in patient care & community support. LloydsPharmacy stores have cemented themselves as a destination for families throughout the communities which it serves across Ireland.
The ISPCC charity partnership follows on from the Safe Pharmacy initiative announced earlier this year which LloydsPharmacy partakes. This ISPCC partnership further highlights how LloydsPharmacy is committed to looking after all customers regardless of age, gender or location.
