Join Us For An Outpouring of Love!

Monday 5th July is the birthday of the NHS, and we’ll be celebrating the NHS Big Tea throughout that week! Join us in sharing a cuppa for a national outpouring of thanks for our healthcare heroes. The NHS Big Tea is about showing support for the people at the heart of the NHS and BCHC; the people who go above and beyond to care for us even in the darkest of times.

For many, the Big Tea will be an outpouring of celebration and thanks, and for others it will be a moment of reflection on the incredibly challenging year we’ve had. Whatever you’re feeling, take a moment to have a cuppa, check in with yourself, support our NHS heroes and help raise vital funds for BCHC Charity.

 Host a Big Tea Party!

By hosting your own tea party, you’ll be helping BCHC Charity continue to make a difference for the incredible members of Team BCHC. Whether you’re commanding the kettle with your family, your work mates, or a local group, hosting an NHS Big Tea party is a lovely way to bring your favourite people together, raise spirits and vital funds to support our NHS heroes. Just make sure you’ve got a good stock of biscuits!  If you choose to host your tea party in person, make sure you’re being COVID-safe and following any restrictions, and raise funds by taking small donations for drinks, snacks or games. For example, why not try some teabag wanging? A much less dangerous version of welly-wanging in which participants try to fling a tea bag into a cup; the prize being a free cuppa! If you’re hosting virtually, you could try hosting a quiz or other fun virtual game; contact the Charity Team for more ideas! You can set up a fundraising page via our Virgin Money Giving page; simply click ‘Fundraise’ and follow their instructions to create your page.
