Save the date for the nation’s biggest tea break

Date: 09 June 2022

NHS Big Tea 2022

Join Sussex Community NHS Charity on the week of Tuesday 5 July 2022 for a nationwide PAR-TEA!

We will be celebrating the 74th birthday of our wonderful NHS and raising a teacup to our amazing NHS workforce here at Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust and beyond, by taking part in The NHS Big Tea.

Host your own tea party fundraiser to raise funds for our charity that will support projects that go above and beyond what core funding provides. For example, £200 could fund additional equipment or diagnostic tools to enhance patient care, pay for a team building day to boost staff morale, buy essential goodies for patient discharge gift baskets or even spruce up a waiting area to improve patient experience.

It’s super easy to join the brew crew – you can show your support for our NHS and the incredible people at its heart, through participating at home, school, work, or within your community - there are no limits!

“The NHS Big Tea is a big date in the calendar for us at Sussex Community NHS Charity, as it’s the one day of the year the entire nation is asked to celebrate and thank the people who work at the heart of our NHS.

“After two years of unprecedented challenges, it’s more important than ever that we continue to recognise the dedication of our workforces delivering excellent care in our community, 365 days of the year,” said Rosie Gratwick, Sussex Community NHS Charity Manager.

Led by NHS Charities Together, the NHS Big Tea officially takes place on Tuesday 5 July 2022, but we invite you to celebrate anytime across the week.

Stick the kettle on and visit our website to check out our handy toolkit of fundraising ideas, downloadable resources, and printable decorations. It has never been easier to take part and raise funds to enhance NHS patient care in your community and support staff wellbeing. 

We’d love to see your tea party, so if you’re posting your celebration pics on social media, ‘spill the tea’ and tag us in!
