NHS Big Tea 2022

Save the date 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 2022!

Tuesday 5 July

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.

4. Donate

You can set up a dedicated Big Tea fundraising page on our Just Giving dedicated portal

  • Online: simply visit our J ust Giving page to pay in your donations
  • By cheque: you can make out a cheque to "Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Charitable Fund" and post it to the attention of Margarita Vidiella, Head of Charity
