For every nurse working twelve hour shifts in a full-face mask. For every clinician fighting to keep our loved ones alive. For every hospital porter, support worker and paramedic putting themselves on the line.

They say everything stops for tea.

And this July, the whole nation will stop for the NHS Big Tea. It’ll be a national outpouring like no other. An outpouring of love. And of gratitude. An outpouring of joy and generosity, warmth and reflection. 


It’s time to brew a national thank you.

We’ve been through a year like no other. And this year, everyone has a reason to thank our NHS heroes.

So join us on 5th July – or whenever works best for you –by hosting an NHS Big Tea. 


How to get involved:

Two main ways to support our NHS Big Tea:

  1. Host a tea party or gathering over a cuppa (following all Covid guidelines, of course)

    Get your friends, family or work colleagues together with tea and cake and host your own NHS Big Tea party on 5th July.

    It’s so simple to get involved:

    • Fill in the form below to register your interest and we will send you a fundraising pack to get started (fundraising pack includes logos, posters, bunting, cake flags)
    • Get the date booked in your diary and send out invites
    • Bake or buy your favourite cakes or refreshments or ask each guest to bring something along to the event
    • Ask everyone to make a donation at the event to East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals’ Charity to give back to your hospital
    • Make your event even more celebratory by having entertainment, a bake sale or competition, raffle or quiz
