NHS Big Tea 2021

NHS Big Tea 2021 banner

It's the nation's biggest tea break, and a chance to raise money for NHS charities – the NHS Big Tea is upon us for 2021!

Monday 5 July, 3pm

Our Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Charity wants everyone in our amazing local communities to break out the mugs and teapots and get brewing! 

We'll be encouraging all our colleagues to have that all-important break, but we're also encouraging you to organise your own tea party to raise funds – all of which will go straight to improving the support we offer our doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.

Here are five easy, tea-sy steps to getting involved:


1. Register your tea party

Let us know what you're planning! If you'd like to put on a Big Tea party, please complete our registration form to let us know you’ll be taking part. 



2. Plan your party by downloading your Big Tea materials:

We have lots of resources to make your event the best it can be. These downloadable materials are perfect for spreading the word with your colleagues and decorating your workspace.
