NHS Tayside staff are encouraged to support the NHS Big Tea and plan their own tea party to help raise funds for their wards and departments to be used for the benefit of patients.
The NHS Big Tea is a fundraising and awareness campaign which celebrates the NHS birthday on 5 July and recognises the vital work of NHS charities in supporting our health service.
Thousands of tea parties are set to take place across the country as the nation comes together to raise money for NHS charities so register your tea party with Tayside Health Fund and put that kettle on!
Complete the fundraising registration form which is available on Staffnet under Hot Links | Fundraising & Donations | Tayside Health Fund. To download your free party pack visit the NHS Charities Together website.
The campaign aims to encourage people in hospitals, homes and local communities across the country to come together with friends, family and colleagues to host a tea party and ‘raise a cuppa’ to the NHS.
TV’s Dr Ranj Singh joined NHS staff at St George’s Hospital in London on 13 June to celebrate the launch of the NHS Big Tea campaign.
As Dr Ranj explained, “The NHS has been a huge part of my life – as it has for millions of people across the country. Our fantastic health service is the envy of the world and the NHS staff who provide such outstanding care for patients every day are extraordinary people.
“I’m delighted to raise a cuppa today to celebrate the launch of the NHS Big Tea, which is the perfect opportunity for everyone who loves our NHS to come together and say thank you.
“By hosting a tea party, you can raise money for NHS charities and show your support for their incredible work.”
It is a fantastic opportunity for staff in wards, departments and the community to get together and boost funds to improve facilities and benefit patients right across Tayside.
