NHS Big Tea
Thursday 25 May 2023
Raise a mug – and some dough! – to support local NHS services Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust Charitable Fund invites you to host an NHS Big Tea event for the 75th anniversary!
Who doesn’t love a tea break? And even better if it can do some good for your community. Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust Charitable Fund is inviting people living in Buckinghamshire to help the NHS go further by joining the annual NHS Big Tea – so why not put the kettle on and raise a cuppa as well as vital funds for our much-loved health service, which turns 75 this summer.
On 5th July, the NHS Big Tea brings the nation together to fundraise for NHS charities, which provide extra support for staff, patients, and volunteers in every UK hospital and Health Board. Led by NHS Charities Together, the national charity caring for the NHS, and the network of 230 NHS charities – including Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust Charitable Fund – it’s your chance to give something back to local health services.
Now entering its sixth year, this summer’s NHS Big Tea celebration will be extra special as we celebrate 75 years of the NHS. You can take part on 5th July, the birthday of the NHS, or any day that week. And your fundraising can help support the health and well-being of NHS staff when they need it most. What better way to give back to those who have always looked after us?
Every penny raised for Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust Charitable Fund will help contribute to key projects supporting local health services in Buckinghamshire, including the Covid Recovery Garden at Brookside Clinic.
In the last couple of years, nearly 7,000 members of the public have joined in with the NHS Big Tea, raising over £500,000 to support important NHS projects.
Every penny we receive is used to enhance and transform the experience of patients and staff of Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust, we recently highlighted the positive impact our Covid Recovery Garden is having on patients undergoing rehabilitation at our Community Head Injury Service at Brookside Clinic, below is a link to a case study from Martin Hillier a Placement Consultant for the Community Head Injury Service who is already seeing the benefits for patients.
