RAISE FUNDS WITH A BREW
This July, join the nation in an outpouring of love for our NHS by hosting your own fundraising tea party to support NHS charities.
“As someone who is a dedicated fan of the NHS, I urge you to put your baking skills to good use by raising some dough for NHS charities.”
- Mel Giedroyc, former Great British Bake Off presenter
You can take part on 5 July, the 75th birthday of the NHS, or any day that week. Your fundraising can help to support the health and wellbeing of NHS staff, at time when they need it most. What better way to give back to those who have always looked after us?
So, grab your teapot, pop the kettle on and let’s turn tea and cake into cash for our beloved NHS.
A VERY ROYAL TEA PARTY
We were thrilled to host a very special NHS BigTea event to celebrate 75 years of the NHS and NHS Charities this year, which included a surprise visit from our Royal Patrons The Prince and Princess of Wales.
NHS staff and patients attended from across the UK, each representing achievements of the NHS and NHS Charities over the last 75 years, from Aneira Thomas, the first baby born on the NHS, to pioneers in research and those on the frontline tackling Covid-19.
YOUR CUPPAS WILL CHANGE LIVES
Every penny you raise on this momentous occasion can help us to support NHS staff, patients and volunteers.
Some of the projects we fund support NHS staff, the beating heart of our health service who often put their patients need before their own. The last few years have been particularly traumatic, with many staff feeling burnt-out, anxious and exhausted.
With your support, we can ensure staff have somewhere to rest during busy shifts, that those who are struggling with their mental health have access to counselling support, and that peer-to-peer training is available for staff so that they can better support each other. Thank you.
