This July, join the nation and host an NHS Big Tea party to raise funds to support NHS staff, patients and volunteers when they need it most.
You can host your tea party on 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.
And every cuppa makes a difference.
2022 is Leighton Hospital's 50th Anniversary year so we're aiming to have 50 tea parties held across our hospitals, services and local communities - could you be one of our fabulous 'fif-tea' party brigade..?
You can pop the kettle on at home. Share a pot of tea with your colleagues. Take a flask outside with friends and family. Or rally the whole street with a brew, biscuits, and bunting!
Large or small, your outpouring of love will help care for those who care for us.
We have lots of resources to make your event the best it can be. We love it when we can be part of your event, so please make sure you share your photos and stories on our social media pages using the hashtag #NHSBigTea.
All funds raised this year in our name will support two campaigns which are very important to us and to our supporters. The first is our current campaign for Cancer Services which aims to raise £25,000 to secure the hypnotherapy service and other much needed help for people living with a cancer diagnosis - find out more here Money raised from the Big Tea will also be used to support staff and patient wellbeing initiatives including improvements to our hospital environments, the upkeep of our gardens and art projects.
