Raise funds for
Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospitals Charity
with NHS Big Tea
Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospitals Charity is asking the community to join it in raising a cuppa to the wonderful health service as part of the NHS Big Tea celebrations taking place on Friday 5th July.
Last year, people up and down the country took part in NHS Big 7Tea as a way to commemorate the NHS turning 70 and support NHS Charities in raising vital funds. Now an annual celebration, the charity is asking the public to once again host their own tea party and invite friends, family and colleagues along to mark the occasion.
The humble cup of tea has a long and proud association with the NHS as it is considered an important aspect of a patient’s experience and recovery. A cup of tea brings people together, gives us the chance to catch up with loved ones, share stories with colleagues, form new bonds and strengthen old ones. Each tea party organised will help the charity to raise the funds it needs to ensure both Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospitals can continue to offer the best possible care for its patients.
Serena Daw, Public Fundraising Manager for Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospitals Charity, said:
Whether you like it milky, sweet or just how it comes, a cup of tea is the perfect way to toast to our fantastic health service, the brilliant hospitals we call home, and of course our staff too.
As we celebrate 71 years of the NHS on Friday 5 July, we’re asking you to please gather your family, friends and colleagues to throw a Big Tea party. The money you raise will help us to provide our patients with the best possible treatment and care, and improve the experience for each and every person who steps through our doors. Our hospitals could not do the incredible work they do without our generous supporters, and we feel that’s worth raising a cuppa to!”
Birmingham Children’s Hospital, located in Birmingham City Centre is the UK’s leading specialist paediatric centre and cares for 90,000 sick children and young people from across the country every year. Money raised by Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity helps to fund projects that improve patient experience, enable research and innovation and technology and equipment advances, and develop the hospital environment.
Birmingham Women’s Hospital is one of only two dedicated women’s hospitals in the UK and is home to the single busiest maternity department, delivering 8,200 babies a year. In April, Birmingham Women’s Hospital Charity launched an appeal to raise £3.5million to bring Woodland House – a brand-new, purpose-built bereavement centre – to the hospital, where heartbreaking pregnancy and baby loss conversations can take place. The appeal will see Birmingham Women’s Hospital set the standard for pregnancy and loss care, nationally.
