Over the last 70 years the NHS has transformed the health and wellbeing of the nation and become the envy of the world. And helping behind the scenes are more than 250 dedicated NHS charities.
Whether supporting research and development, brightening up hospital environments, providing state-of-the-art technologies and equipment or supporting staff, they help the NHS to go above and beyond.
You can support NHS charities in many ways – for example by making a donation or volunteering – and to celebrate the 70th birthday a group of NHS charities have come together and launched the NHS Big 7Tea for the whole nation to get behind!
The NHS Big 7Tea
What better way to celebrate one of the nation’s most loved institutions than with a cup of tea?
But this will be more than just a regular brew. On and around 5 July, people up and down the country will get together to raise a cuppa to our beloved NHS and raise funds for NHS charities.
It’s easy. Just get people around for a cup of tea, and maybe a slice of cake, and have some fun swapping your NHS stories.
