Jacqui Clapton is the head pharmacist at Clubville Pharmacy, she and her colleagues serve as a ray of hope and upliftment to the community of Middelburg in Mpumalanga.
The pharmacy says their focus is on people and how they can go the extra mile to assist their community - not only with their medication but their emotional well-being as well. It is this attitude that has made them a beloved emblem of well-being to the community.
From sponsoring the physiotherapy treatment of children in the community, fundraising for drought relief, supporting the Middleburg Hospice and always assisting with medical supplies for the local SPCA – Jacqui and Clubville Pharmacy never shy away from being able to make a difference. Beyond this, the pharmacy also gives support to the Mid Hartklop organisation – a non-profit that assists the less fortunate with resources and regular volunteer work.
When tragedy struck and the pharmacy burnt down in April 2021, the team were up and back at work the next morning, more than ever ready to continue to give back and ensure the community got the help, assistance and medication they needed - even if it meant working from make shift tent facilities.
It is because of this continued commitment and passion to serve that the community of Middleburg and their collaborative NGO’s and NPO’s united to celebrate Jacqui and the pharmacy and take the opportunity to say thank you.
