The Big Tea
Tuesday 8th June 2021
QVH Charity is inviting the community to join with them and take part in the nation’s biggest tea break on 5 July to say thank you to the NHS.
Following a year like no other, get involved in a national outpouring of love (and tea) by hosting or taking part in your own NHS Big Tea party at 3pm on 5 July. Each event can be in person or virtual, with your local community, friends, family or at work, and is a chance to reflect and say thank you for everything that NHS staff and volunteers have done and continue to do. And for QVH Charity, it is a way of not only saying thank you but raising money for Queen Victoria Hospital too.
Camilla Slattery, head of fundraising at QVH Charity said “As our hospital continues to strive for innovation and excellence, there will always be a need for those added extras that can make all the difference to the lives of the patients we care for. By taking part in The Big NHS Tea and donating £5 towards our charity, or whatever you can afford, we can ensure we can continue to fund projects that make a real difference to both patients and staff. We hope our wonderful local community will get involved and join us in saying thank you to our local NHS heroes.”
