The NHS is turning 70 this year and what better way to celebrate one of the nation’s most loved institutions than with a cup of tea.

But this will be more than just a regular brew. On and around 5 July, people up and down the country will get together to raise a cuppa to our beloved NHS and raise funds for NHS charities.

Over the last 70 years the NHS has transformed the health and wellbeing of the nation and become the envy of the world. And helping behind the scenes are more than 250 dedicated NHS charities.

Whether supporting research and development, brightening up hospital environments, providing state-of-the-art technologies and equipment or supporting staff, they help the NHS to go above and beyond.

The NHS has touched us all and NHS Big 7Tea is a chance to celebrate and say thank you.

Across the UK people are organising tea parties and many are choosing an NHS charity to support.

Why not hold an event in aid of The Forever Friends Appeal? You might want to invite your friends to a street party, brew up for your family, crack open the staff room tea bags, or commandeer the local village hall. We’ve got posters, bunting, cake cards, and even selfie props for your tea party. Just click on the link below to request our Big7Tea pack.
