MCCABE'S PHARMACY, which has branches across Fingal, is fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Association of Ireland (CFAI) over the Christmas period with a gift-wrapping initiative.
When any customer buys a gift in McCabe's Pharmacy, staff will gift-wrap it in return for a donation towards the CFAI. The CFAI is McCabe's Pharmacy's nominated Charity of the Year and the family pharmacy chain has already completed a number of fundraising drives. To coincide with Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Week, pins and trolley coins were available to purchases from all 21 branches of McCabe's Pharmacy with proceeds going directly to CFAI. Staff also raised much needed funds by taking part in the Mini Marathon. Sharen McCabe, Managing Director, McCabe's Pharmacy said: 'We are delighted to be raising funds for Cystic Fibrosis, which is very close to our hearts. Our team has really got involved in the fundraising drives and we look forward to a busy Christmas of wrapping gifts in aid of the CFAI.' Martin Cahill, Fundraising Manager with the Cystic Fibrosis Association of Ireland said: 'We rely heavily on the support of the public and so we really appreciate the fundraising activities by McCabe's Pharmacy.'
