5 July 2024

Join the nation this July and host your own NHS Big Tea party to raise funds for SASH Charity. You can brew up a storm on 5 July, the 76th birthday of the NHS, or any day that week.

Whether you get together at home, at school, in the office, or in your local community, there are so many ways to raise money at an NHS Big Tea. From asking for donations in return for tea, cake and good company, to hosting a quiz, playing tea related games or running baking competitions. The possibili-teas are endless!

Hosting an NHS Big Tea is a great way to bring communities together around a shared love of the NHS whilst raising money for patients, families and staff across Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.

Everyone can get involved and every cuppa makes a difference.

So, grab your teapot, pop the kettle on and let’s turn tea and cake into real life impact. Here are just a few examples of how your donations have already made a difference to patients and staff in our hospitals.

  • Funded a cold-cap machine for patients affected by hair loss during chemotherapy

  • Music festivals to thank staff
  • Provided weddings for those receiving end of life care

The NHS Big Tea is owned by NHS Charities Together, to support our NHS charity members in their fundraising.
