Gordons Chemists have presented Community Pharmacy Northern Ireland (CPNI) with a silver pestle and mortar in memory of the late Neil Gordon.
Neil Gordon was the Co-founder of Gordons Chemists, who sadly lost his long battle with cancer in June last year. Neil was elected to the Board of the PCC (the former name of CPNI), and served on it for 7 years before being awarded a Fellowship of the Pharmaceutical Society in NI in 2013.
Robert Gordon, Director at Gordons Chemists, said:
“It seemed fitting that we marked Neil’s time on the Board in some way, and we are delighted that Gerard and Paul were happy to accept this piece in his memory.”
The pestle and mortar will take pride of place at the centre of the CPNI boardroom table in Belfast.
Gerard Greene, Chief Executive of CPNI, added:
“Neil’s contribution as a Director at CPNI was invaluable and mirrored the positive impact he had on the health & wellbeing of the NI public through the Gordons Chemists company which he operated with his brother, Robert. The mortar & pestle will serve as a permanent reminder of Neil’s support, and we are extremely grateful to Robert and all associated with Gordons for presenting this to CPNI.”
