Get ready to clink teacups this July to celebrate the 75th birthday of the NHS and raise money for Bradford Hospitals Charity.
People across the UK will be showing an outpouring of love for our NHS – and the official NHS charities which support them – by hosting an NHS Big Tea party to raise money for their local hospital charity.
Bradford Hospitals Charity – the NHS charity of Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – will be raising a cuppa and money to fund extra equipment and projects to ensure they can provide the very best care and treatment for the people of Bradford and beyond.
Whether you celebrate with a cuppa and cake at home, at school, in the workplace, or in your local community – there are so many possibili-teas to raise money. And because it’s a special birthday for the NHS this year, schools and workplaces are also welcome to wear blue and make a donation.
Big Tea parties can be held on or around the NHS birthday on Wednesday 5 July.
Baggins the Bear – funded by Bradford Hospitals’ Charity and given to all children who come into hospital for surgery – has already started his Big Tea party with Ward 12 staff at Bradford Royal Infirmary (pictured).
Wards and departments across Bradford Royal Infirmary and St Luke’s Hospital will be taking part in the Big Tea celebration with patients, where possible. And Bradford Hospitals’ Charity will be treating colleagues on 5 July with tasty giveaways as a thank you.
Bradford Hospitals’ Charity Director Sharon Milner, said: “We’re excited to celebrate such a milestone in the history of our wonderful NHS! So don’t take down the bunting just yet because we’re looking forward to celebrating this par-tea in style! It will also give us chance to thank our amazing NHS colleagues.”
