Raise a cuppa to celebrate the NHS’s 70th birthday

As part of this year’s celebrations of the NHS’s 70th birthday, all over the country Big7Tea parties are being organised to raise money for local hospital charities, and to raise awareness of the vital work the charities do. And Southmead Hospital Charity would like local people to get involved and host their own Big 7Tea party.

“If you enjoy a good cuppa, then why not get together with friends, colleagues at work, or fellow members of your club and host a Big 7tea.” Says Adrian Brown, Southmead Hospital Charity’s community fundraising manager.

“Hosting a tea party is a very fitting way to celebrate a milestone birthday for the NHS, one of our national treasures, and we’d love as many people as possible to organise their own and raise money for us. Let us know if you’re planning a party – we’d love to hear about it.”

All the money raised by Big 7Teas will go towards the various departments within Southmead Hospital to help buy new equipment, fund research, and support improvements to the environment.

“Southmead Hospital Charity will also be hosting their own Big 7Tea party here at the hospital on Thursday 5th July, the NHS’s birthday.  We’d like to extend a warm welcome to everyone to come along and enjoy a cup of tea and some homemade cake.” Adds Adrian.
