The staff at Lauder Pharmacy wish to mark their anniversary by giving something back to the community they have served for the last 10 years.

Lauder Pharmacy is about to celebrate 10 years of serving the community – and is hosting a series of events to thank the public for its support.

Pharmacists Cathy Scaife and Hilary Evans have been in charge since the shop opened in 2008.

Cathy said: “It has been a fantastic 10 years, and Lauder people are great.

“It’s such a fantastic community to be a part of, and it helps a lot to know our customers.”

For the 10th anniversary celebrations, the staff are hoping to have a bit of fun and help a couple of local charities along the way.

Counter assistant Susie Burns has been working as a counter assistant for two years.

She said: “We’re doing something different every day in our birthday week, starting on Monday, August 27 and ending on Saturday, September 1, which is our proper birthday. We’re giving discounts of 10% the whole week, so we can give something back to this superb community.

“We’re doing some quizzes, and an anagram competition, and the staff’s kids are helping out with a bakesale.

“We want to raise some cash for the Lauder Men’s Shed project, which is still in the starting-up stage, and we also want to help out the local sheltered housing at Kirk Care, as most of the residents are our customers.”

The staff have decorated their window specially for the occasion and are putting on a range of offers.
