How to support the NHS on its 75th anniversary

Words by Abi Scaife

It’s the 75th birthday of the NHS on Wednesday, 5 July - and they’re asking you to celebrate with a Big Tea party.

Tell me more.

To help raise money for NHS charities - that is, the charities that are associated with the NHS and help to supplement funds - the public is being asked to hold a good old-fashioned tea party.

Tea parties are super underrated, by the way. Since when did wearing funny hats and drinking the nation’s favourite beverage surrounded by your best friends - become uncool?

So what do you need to do?

It’s super easy to sign up - just head to the NHS Big Tea website, and register your tea party, which will help you set up a Justgiving page - to collect all your donations. Plan the event, invite your friends, and celebrate the money you have raised!
