Sigma will continue to partner with the local charity throughout the year  

Sigma Pharmaceuticals, a leading pharmacy wholesaler and distributor in the UK, has once again demonstrated its commitment to supporting the local community by helping raise funds for local charitable causes.

Watford-based industry leader raised £20,000 for Citizens Advice Watford, their selected charity of the year, during the recent Sigma annual conference held in Sun City, South Africa.

Throughout the year, Sigma will continue to partner with Citizens Advice Watford, a local charity that provides frontline service to the community, giving free, expert and impartial advice and support to 8,000 people a year, many of whom are facing crisis situations.

Applauding the work done by this charity, Dr Bharat Shah CBE, Founder and Managing Director at Sigma, said: “It has been eye-opening to learn about the life-changing impact the charity has on the lives of so many people.

“We have seen how their expert team works day in and day out to speak up for people who have nowhere else to turn, ensuring they receive the support and services they’re entitled to.”

Sigma is encouraging others to support the organisation, either financially, or by becoming part of their highly trained volunteer team.

Emma Burgham, Chief Officer at Citizens Advice Watford said: “We are enormously grateful to Dr Shah and everyone at Sigma Pharmaceuticals. The generosity of their supporters will help us to keep our doors open and our phone lines manned. We believe no-one should have to face problems and crises alone.”
