For many schools, extra-curricular activities play a vital role to a student’s school experience, they can help students to succeed in much more than just their academic endeavours. Activities such as sport, team building are essential skills and help students for the better. We were proud to donate £300 to St Patricks Grammar School Armagh for their Golf Classic on Monday 28th August, which is to raise funds for school sports and all extracurricular activities. Members of the McKeevers Chemists team in our Thomas Street branch presented the cheque to Matthew McGleenan.

 Smile for the Camera!

20170727_101624-(003).jpg

Here at McKeevers Chemists we secretly do enjoy having the opportunity to get our photos taken! As we are actively involved with the charities in our local community, we were aware of the shortage of cameras and accessories for the Southern Area Hospice. We were happy to donate as the budget was unable to cover new cameras. The cameras are needed for hospice staff to take photos of their fantastic fundraising events and for their charity shop staff to photograph stock to advertise it for sale.

Our staff definitely had something to smile about as they presented Grainne Mulgrew (SAHS) with 5 state of the art digital cameras, memory cards and cases which will be used for events.
