We would like to say a big well done to our team at Horne Street Pharmacy who have recently helped a local drug rehabilitation service in Halifax called Alpha House.
Unfortunately Alpha House were recently burgled twice in the space of one week and as many of our patients at Horne Street Pharmacy use the charities services, our team decided they needed to do something and help the charity.
One of the issues the charity was having was that their carpets and flooring had been completely ruined since the burglars broke in from the roof.
Hassan Riaz, Pharmacist at Horne Street Pharmacy said “The charity means a lot to our patients who are on methadone and buprenorphine supervision, with many of them volunteering to help clear away the aftermath”.
The pharmacy team took it upon themselves to contact a local carpet and flooring company called King Cross Carpets and Flooring and explained the situation, who very generously agreed to fit new carpets for free. They also agreed to fit extra carpets for the whole building at cost price which the pharmacy team decided they would fundraise for.
Over the next week the pharmacy will be holding a raffle with many great prizes in order to raise enough money to cover the costs of the new carpets and floors.
Well done to the whole pharmacy team for supporting Alpha House and caring for the Halifax community.
