Following a nomination process to decide the shortlisted finalists, the residents of Kent voted Sidcup based St. John’s Pharmacy as the winners of the Perrys Exceptional Business Award 2016.

St. John’s Pharmacy, was nominated by Mel Foreman. She said: “St. John’s Pharmacy have been my chemist for 14 years and always go above and beyond for the patients they serve. They are the epitome of what it means to be an entrepreneur and are always willing to participate in philanthropic ventures when asked. The work they put into making sure every customer is happy and healthy is far above the remit of a ‘normal’ business.”

Farhad Ismail, owner of St. John’s Pharmacy, said: “I was absolutely shocked to have won this award - everyone in the category was so deserving!
