Accord Hospice Rainbow Ramble


Abbey RambleIn August 2017 staff from all Abbey Chemist branches, along with High Street Pharmacy, came together as part of our annual team building event, taking part in the Accord Hospice Rainbow Ramble. The day involved completion of a 3K walk/run in the park at Ferguslie Gardens, with the team being showered in coloured paint powder whilst completing the course. Much fun was had by all and we are proud to have raised £1510 to support the hospice as they continue to carry out such vital work, supporting patients and their families in the local community.
