Join us to celebrate the 74th Birthday of the NHS on Tuesday 5th July

The NHS Big Tea is a once in a year opportuni-tea for us all to do our bit to make the NHS go further. It’s a chance to raise pots of donations by doing something simple, which we all love – putting the kettle on and having a natter. 

You can host your tea party on the 5th July in celebration of the NHS’ birthday (74 this year) or whenever and wherever suits you. You’ll be joining the nation, as thousands of par-teas are held and millions of tea bags squeezed in homes, schools, workplaces, community centres, church halls and hospitals.

Last year was very different and we were unable to deliver our plans, but with the help of 14 amazing local cafes we raised £3,000 which was directly reinvested into health and wellbeing initiatives for our colleagues. This included things like free therapy sessions such as reiki and massage as well as launching our random acts of kindness scheme. With the help of Sodexo our onsite caterer, we gave all colleagues a free cup of tea and slice of cake.

Your support has never been needed more and the NHS Big Tea is an excellent opportunity for communities to come together and pay tribute to brilliant staff and volunteers, who have gone above and beyond during the pandemic to keep us and our loved ones safe.

 The effects of the pandemic are still being felt even as the NHS and the country now looks to recover and rebuild, so the continued support of local communities remains is vital and hugely appreciated.

So what are you waiting for? open your homes, village halls, wards, waiting rooms, schools and workplaces up, invite some chums to sip with you and watch the donations pour in.
