Karina is a ‘shining light’ at pharmacy

An ASSISTANT at a Sowerby Bridge chemist has been recognised as the best in her field.

Karina Lamb, who works at Rowlands Pharmacy in Town Hall Street, was named Pharmacy Assistant of the Year in her company’s Excellence Awards scheme.

Judges said: “One of the pleasures of visiting Sowerby Bridge is the greeting and smile you receive from Karina when you walk through the door. Every customer that steps inside this pharmacy is made to feel special and welcome and nothing is too much trouble.

“Positivity flows out of this individual to every initiative or new direction we try to take the branch. Celebrity Slim has been a roaring success in Sowerby Bridge and in no small part is down to Karina. She tried it and lost weight on the programme and this has been communicated to all her customers.

“Standards in Sowerby Bridge are second to none and this is down to Karina’s diligence and pride in her work.

“It is a pleasure to visit this pharmacy and see Karina deliver her fantastic customer service. She is a shining light to both the area and the company.”

The awards were open to all stores and individuals across the entire organisation, and nominations came from colleagues and customers who voted in a number of categories.

Karina said: “I would like to thank everyone who voted. This means a great deal to me and I am delighted to be part of an organisation that plays such an important role within the local community.”
