The anniversary of the begninning of the NHS is July 5 and what better way to celebrate one of the nation’s most loved institutions than with a cup of tea?

On and around July 5, people across the country will be getting together to raise a cuppa to our beloved NHS and raise funds for NHS charities.

Perhaps you can hold a tea party or bake sale at home, work, school or at your community group.

If you’d like to host a tea party and raise money for Southmead Hospital Charity, please get in touch so that we can support your fundraising.

You can also download your Big Tea fundraising poster here.

We want to make healthcare better for our patients today and in the future by funding innovative, nurturing and supportive projects that transform local NHS services.

With your help we can fund pioneering treatments, equipment and new ways of improving the lives of patients, their families and in supporting staff  as well as redeveloping and building new healthcare facilities for local communities.
