Frimley Health Charity are urging people to join the nation’s biggest tea break on 5 July and help raise money for the incredible people in our NHS at your local hospital who’ve done so much to help everyone get through the pandemic.
Following a year like no other, Frimley Health Charity wants as many people as possible to get involved in a national outpouring of love and thanks for NHS staff and volunteers at your local hospital on its birthday by hosting or taking part in an NHS Big Tea on the 5 July.
Each event can be in person or virtual, with the community, friends, family or at work, and is a chance to reflect and say thank you for everything that NHS staff and volunteers at your local hospital have done and continue to do, by taking part in the nation’s biggest tea break to raise money for Frimley Health Charity.
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 brews, biscuits and bunting. To make it even easier, you can show your support by taking 5 minutes to enjoy a tea break, texting TEA to 70560 and donating £5 to support Frimley Health Charity and tagging three friends on social media and calling on them to do the same.
“Many of us have a lot to be grateful to NHS staff and volunteers for following the year we have had. They have been at the forefront of the response to one of the biggest challenges our country has ever faced. NHS Big Tea is chance to show our support for them by joining a national outpouring of thanks this July.
For many, this will be an outpouring of joy, celebrating the vaccine and all that it is allowing us to do again. For others, it will be an outpouring of thanks, for everything that our NHS champions have done for us. For some, sadly, it will be a moment of reflection for the loss of loved ones. Whatever the emotion, please join the nation’s biggest tea break to raise money for the incredible people in our NHS.”
Thanks to the support and generosity of the public over the last year, NHS Charities have been able to be there for NHS staff, to ensure they can continue with their vital life-saving work, whether through funding counselling and mental health support, or support with practical needs, like food, drink and a place to rest.
Frimley Health Charity has used the funds they have received to make significant improvements to staff wellbeing spaces such as staff rooms and gardens, invest in specialist medical equipment for our patients and provided significant investment support to community projects around our hospitals. We now are asking you, the public, to take part in the NHS Big Tea and enable the charity to continue supporting NHS staff, volunteers and patients.
Thousands are expected to host events and Frimley Health Charity has produced a fundraising pack to help those events go with a swing. Join us for a national outpouring of love, gratitude and generosity during the week commencing 5th July – or whenever works best for you – and raise money for your local hospital charity.
