Annual Charity Day
As part of Day Lewis' commitment to the community, pharmacies are encouraged to support local charities and sponsor local events and causes.
Every year to mark the first day of Kirit & JC buying their first pharmacy, the support office, warehouses, and pharmacies across the country take part in the annual charity fun day, in which all its pharmacy, support office and warehouse teams are invited to participate. All teams persevere in raising money for a local registered charity of their choice, to ensure that the company as a whole is able to support as many charities as possible.
Pharmacy teams and the Support Office raise money through fund-raising activities such as cake sales, raffles and recently pieing Directors. Over the last 5 years Day Lewis have donated over £500,000 to various charities.
The KCJC Foundation was set up by the Patel family in memory of the late Kirit Patel MBE. The foundation matches funds raised across the business, pound for pound.
In 2019 Day Lewis became founder patrons of OnSide Legacy Croydon, a 21st century youth club provision. The Youth Zone will provide a safe environment where young people can come and enjoy themselves and will enable young people to raise their aspirations and confidence to create a happier and healthier generation.
